My husband is 35 years old and in good health. He has a lump on his abdomen between his belly button and groin on the right side of his body. This lump is about the half the size of an adult's pinky finger. It is soft and floating. It does not cause him regular pain, but does occassionally hurt with activity. He is going for a check up with the GP this week, but we would like to know some possibility so we are informed.

Any ideas would be welcome since we are very concerned about cancer and other serious things.

  • My suggestion is that it is probably a hernia. It is usually easily fixed. I'd definitely let his doctor know. Just my opinion. Let us know how his doctor appointment goes.God Bless.

  • As it turns out, it is something called a lumpia (I may not have that name quite right). It is a fatty deposit. It can happen to anyone regardless of weight. It is harmless and can just be left there. It very rarely will change, but if it does then we need to get it removed. So it was something relatively harmless and fairly common.

  • I'm so glad to hear that it wasn't serious. I've heard of them being fatty deposits but didn't know the exact name. Thanks for keeping me updated!God Bless.
