Suffer from asthma and inflamed intestine. No other symptoms. Anything to be done?

I am a fit 36 year old and other than Athsma which ive had since childhood I am very healthy, I've noticed a large sausage shaped hard bit in my gut. I've had an ultrsound and they're weren't able to tell me what was causing it other than its my intestines and it may be inflamed. Its still there a year later and seems to be growing. I don't suffer from anyother bowl symptoms.

Large mass in the abdomen need to be investigated especially if it is growing.Ultrasound is not a great investigating tool for the gut,as it can not pick up intestinal abnormalities.
I would suggest you to consult a doctor and go for CT scan of the abdomen to rule out any potentially dangerous disease.
