The bulge can still be a hernia.
And this should be confirmed by a CT scan.
Besides hernia, another possibility is the bulging of the stomach or the intestine pushing against the weak muscle covering.
This is not called hernia since there is no hole.
Weak muscle and separation between the muscle layers an cause this commonly.
Fat bulge is another possibility.
However, a CT scan will be helpful.
If this is not hernia, then you should see either an abdominal surgeon or cosmetic surgeon to consider the repair of the muscle defect.
This is not serious condition and you can continue with normal life if not hernia.
