I have had a lump in my stomach for about 20 months. It is kind of soft but does not go away when I lie down and can't seemed to be pushed in anywhere. It is about 2 inches above the navel. You can't see it other than a little bulge now. The lump itself does not feel real big but if I was to explain....maybe a little bigger than a grape but not as big as a golf ball. It kind of burns a little when I think about it....other than that, no pain. No other symptoms. I am a 62 female and overweight, especially in the stomach. Does this sound like a hernia? I feel like I am going to die because I have had it so long. TYIA

It is not real deep but you can't see it. Just when you push on it. It usually only burns or tugs if I am standing.
