Lump in abdomen, pulses strongly, lot of stress, normal blood pressure. Suggestions?

Hello. I've been feeling a lump in my abdomen for a few days now. Yesterday I noticed it pulses strongly with my heartbeat. Today I looked it up online and now I am freaking out thinking it might be AAA. I am a 36 year old female, I have never smoked or had high blood pressure, and I am not extremely overweight. I live under a lot of stress and my diet could be better, but it's still reasonably balanced. Is this a 911-worthy condition (as some websites suggested) or can it wait till tomorrow?

Hi ! Good evening. I am Dr Shareef answering your query.

Not to frighten you, but surely you should see a doctor in the nearby ER at your earliest possible. With your symptoms, we can not risk waiting till tomorrow. It could be an abdominal aortic aneurysm, but may be some other swelling from any of the intra abdominal organs is very closely related to the abdominal aorta transmitting its pulsation to the swelling. It can only be known by physical examination and further investigations.

Thank you for chosing healthcaremagic forum for your health query. Wishing you all the luck and an early recovery. Dr Shareef.
