Swelling abdomen

I have a lump or swelling on the left side of my abdomen, more or less 2 fingers below my rib cage. I cannot say it is really painful, but if feels half uncomfortable. Sometimes it really stands out and feels " full" . I often experience a very full feeling. Should I worry about it? It has been there now for more or less a year.

Dear Maritha

Thank you for visiting health24.com.

I recommend that you consult your GP, as it is most likely a lipoma, which can be removed in your doctor's surgery.

Regards
