Noticed that I have lump just under my rib cage in the upper right abdomen w/o any pain and have been experiencing some gas lately. Is the lump some how associated and should I be concerned. I used to be a moderate exerciser but have been feeling higher levels of stress associated w/ work as well and been able to exercise as much as I used too about the last 4 months. I'm a 32 yr old male.
