Have abdominal pain and lump above belly button. What could it be?

I ve been experiencing abdominal pain (upper and lower) on and off for the last year. I ve had an ultrasound and the doctor has ruled out a hernia . last weekend, I noticed a lump about two inches above my belly button. It is causing discomfort, especially when I sit for a long time. It is causing some mild pain and feels like it is pressing on something and causing indigestion. Any idea what it could be?

Thanks for using HCM.
Ruling out hernia and diagnosing it on ultrasound can be quite challenging and depends on expertise of the concerned doctor. Having said this, it can be possible that the time when you had the ultrasound, the hernia could have been small enough to be detected on the ultrasound. However you did mention that you notice a lump above the belly button which is a sign for hernia. Advise would be to revisit your doctor for repeat checkup.
Feel free for further queries.
