Could this be a hernia? A medium sized lump (bigger than a grape, smaller than a golf ball, as much as I can tell) not positive about the size, inside my stomach that has been there for about 20 months. It is about 1 or 2 inches above my navel. No pain but a burning or pulling sensation once in awhile. I don't think it can be pushed back in anywhere as you can't see it just feel it. No other symptoms. I seem to feel it more, when touched, when I am standing...when I am sitting it does not bulge out as much but still there. I am a 62 year old female and overweight in my stomach area. Seems to feel a little bigger than it was last month. The lump does not settle when I lie down. When I sit or lie down I can't feel it as much when I press on it but when I stand and press on it I can feel it more. It doesn't really bulge when I cough but when I put my hand on it and cough it can be felt easier. It really can't be seen, just felt. There is a little bulge there when I sit down. I had a rupture in my navel when I was born (just threw that in). My concern is that I thought a hernia could be pushed back in and mine never could be.....and it doesn't show on the outside.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
