Lump on navel, sickness in stomach, no vomiting or pain, lost weight. What is it?

Noticed 1 1/2 months ago a lump on the left side of my navel. Push on it, but there's no pain. I have changed my eating habits to small portions, and no useless carbs, and have lost 10 pounds. Lump seems to be closer to skin, enough to faintly see it, but easy to touch. It's the size of an egg. At times, my whole belly seems to double in size after eating. Feel full often in the mornings and have a sensation of being sick to my stomach. No vomiting or pain.

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

The bloating that is occurring in relation to your meals and in the early morning may be related to : (1) GERD- gastroesophageal reflux disease, this would be treated by using small meals and avoid fried/fatty/spicy and acidic foods. The weight loss would also help.
There is medication available that would help treat GERD. GERD would also cause indigestion and upset stomach.

(2)lactose intolerance-

(3)certain foods can are associated with bloating-broccoli, turnips, beans, cabbage, brussel sprouts

(4)constipation can also cause bloating

There are different lumps that can occur on the body,accurate diagnosis would require examination by your doctor who would look at the location, size,shape, consistency,tenderness and the overly skin.

I hope this helps
