Welcome to Health care magic.

There are few things I would like to know,

1) Where in the abdomen is the buldge seen?

2) When is it seen during the whole day?

3) Any movements observed on the buldge?

If it is a stomach buldge, seen on the right side of upper abdomen then it is normal and there is nothing to worry. In scaphoid (thin) abdomen there are possibilities of observing a dilated stomach after meals in the right side of the upper abdomen.

The anatomy of the stomach makes it puffier on the right side than the left.
