Thanks for your query.

Based on the facts that you have posted, it appears to me that you may be having what is called as ‘Epigastric Hernia’. However, this can be confirmed only on clinical examination. So please consult some General Surgeon for examination and to confirm the diagnosis. Since you are asthmatic and get cough very frequently, there is danger of it getting strangulated. So please get it examined and repaired at the earliest.

Please feel free to ask, if you have any more questions. I shall be pleased to help you .

Thanks with Regards.
