Dear customer,

Thank you for information,

The abdomen lump during exercise may be due to the hernia.The umbilical hernia may cause such lump due to the weakness of abdomen muscles.

You should consult the doctor and have the sonography of the abdomen done to know the underlying cause.The surgery may be required in some cases.

Let me know if you have any doubt.


Thank you
