I've discovered a large hard (2" long by 1/2") lump along my bikini line, no outward sign of redness or irritation. It was sore yesterday after removing my pants for shower. Today it's still there but isn't bothersome. It doesnt move and is still there today. Should I worry? What could it be?

Welcome to XXXXXXX
Thanks for your query.
Possibilities are---

1. Umbilical hernia- protrusion of bowel through weakness of tissue in that area.
2. Swelling arising from the subcutaneous tissues like from the fat, nerve or muscle tissue.
3. Incisional hernia- hernia through weakness in the scar of previous surgery.

Only a physical examination can give a clue.

Pl. consult early and get well soon.
