Why do I feel like a huge bruise and tenderness on the left side of abdomen ?

I have what feels like a huge bruise and tenderness on the left side of my abdomen . (No visible bruise) I noticed it about a week ago in one small area, and the feeling of bruised/tenderness seems to have spread. I m not pregnant, nor have I had any problems recently with constipation . I can t think of anything I could have possibly done to injur the area. When I stretch or flex my abdominal muscles, I am able to palpate what feels like tender swelling areas. Any thoughts of what this could be?

Recent history of abdominal pain and palpable swelling with abdominal muscle contraction is most likely a superficial mass. It may be any mass arising from the muscle or lipoma.

Do a baseline Ultrasound of the abdomen. if it is inconclusive go are MRI abdomen.
Consult a surgeon for help.
