All of a sudden I have a pressure sensitive area just above

Customer Question

All of a sudden I have a pressure sensitive area just above my navel and a raised area under my skin that feels like a thin cord that runs from my navel to just under my right nipple. There is no visible discoloration in the area. No pain at all unless I go poking around the navel area. Feel the same as before this came about but it is disconcerting. Thank you so much for any information you could give me. William.
