I feel a lump in the left side of my stomach - near my hip.

Customer Question

I feel a lump in the left side of my stomach/bladder area - near my hip. It does not pertrude out when you look at my stomach. However, it is easy to feel and it is most prominant when I am laying down. I can also move it around. I cannot feel anything like this on the other side of my stomach/bladder area, infact I cannot feel anything on the other side. There is no pain from this lump but it feels pretty big. Is this a cancerous tumor? FYI: I am 18 years old.

How does it feels; soft, firm, hard or fluid filled?

 

Is it increases in size when you cough or sneeze?

 

Is it painful and/or tender?
