Not tender to touch not pulsating. Right side rib cage slightly stings. No dramatic weight loss. Never had pancretitis. No urinary complaints I have been told i have multiple fibroids. This condition arose wen i became pregnant in july last year and miscarried in november. Since then i noticed the lump or mass when i lie on my back

Your history and symptoms suggest you may be suffering from epigastric hernia.
It can be diagnosed by a physical inspection and a subsequent CT abdomen to see the defect in abdominal wall and to rule out any other problem.
Consult your doctor for the diagnosis and management.

Please write if there is any other query to ask.
Best of luck
