Put a palm of hand on the swelling and cough hard to see if the bulge increase. Then press on it to see whether it disappears.
Awaiting for your feedback.

Brief Answer:
There is no non-surgical option.

No other option as you would know that this is a defect in the abdominal wall that has allowed hernia to appear and needs surgical repair.
