Some thing is happening on my screen.Are you jumping in and out of the chat?
How can I communicate with you, everything is out of order? I have not watched the bulging while lifting( so I am not sure if it increases in size).
The bulging is under the skin right above the belly button, before getting to the rib cage.
There are two possibilities with such bulges.If its changing in size then its hernia from anterior abdominal wall hernia.If its not changing in size then it can be subcutaneous lipoma.
A clinical evaluation and sonography can help to confirm the diagnosis.
Did you get my reply?
It might be fat? but the discomfort what is the ventral hernia?
Ventral hernia is protrusion of abdominal content through the weakened portion of abdominal wall.Fat is unlikely as there is discomfort.Since there is discomfort possibility of hernia is more likely.
