Hi,AAAAA
Thanks for posting your query.

Please do not worry.

I would like you to me provide with some more information so that I can answer your query properly.

Please let me know,
1. Location of lump, near mid line? Below umbilicus?
2. It increases in size when he coughs?
3. History of fever

Please write again with details.

Regards,

Dr.Pragnesh
