Having lump on lower left side of abdomen, looks prominent when bladder is full. Reason?

I have a hard lump that doesnt hurt just feels like a heavy sensation it doesn t move and feels like it is in the muscle on the lower left side of my abdomen near my hip bone about 3 inches in length down towards my pubic bone. I can feel it more when I am lying down nd when I have a full bladder it seems to feel more prominent it cant be seen on the outside of my body only when I press my abdomen

thank you for your query

your symptoms point towards hernia. Most often, a lump in the abdomen is caused by a hernia. An abdominal hernia occurs when there is an area where the muscles are weak.

Lipoma (collection of fatty tissue under the skin)

thank you,
wishing you good health
