About the symptom

Abdominal lump is a swelling or bulge that emerges from any area of the abdomen. It may be soft or firm, depending on the underlying cause.

When to see a doctor

Seek professional care if you experience any of the following symptoms

  • Lump or swelling in stomach

Possible causes

  • Uterine fibroids

    A non-cancerous growth in or around the womb (uterus). Fibroids are made up of muscle and tissue and can vary in size. The exact cause is unknown but fibroids have been related to female hormones (Estrogen and Progesterone) levels. They tend to develop during the ages of 16 to 50 and shrink after menopause.

  • Colon cancer

    Cancer of the large intestines. It can be treated easily in the early stage, hence the general population is encouraged to go for screening with stool blood tests and colonoscopy (camera screening).

  • Ovarian cyst

    Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs in the ovary or on it's surface. The main causes include hormonal imbalance, pregnancy, endometriosis, and pelvic infections.

  • Hepatic cancer
  • Inguinal hernia
  • Pregnancy
  • Congenital biliary dilatation

  • Tuberous sclerosis
  • Ovarian cancer

Related serious diseases

  • Intussusception

    A condition where a segment of the intestines "telescopes" into another. This can cause the intestine walls to die, hence prompt medical attention is needed. It is linked with certain genetic conditions and growths, but in many cases no clear cause is found.
