Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having large lump in upper abdomen when doing sit-up exercises is most likely due to a condition called epigastric hernia.A hernia is a protrusion of a structure or tissue out of its normal position, usually through the abdominal wall. An epigastric hernia is visible as a small bulge and is easily diagnosed in a physical examination.

The treatment may or may not be required depending upon the condition & other factors.

So my best advise for you is to please make an appointment with your doctor to have the tests & examination done so as to know the exact underlying cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

If you have any further question then you can ask me.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
