Posted on Mon, 5 Nov 2018
Question: I have a lump next to belly button which is solid and bruised. I have no pain or discomfort. It's been there for 3 weeks and I noticed it after my niece was jumping on me. I don't feel sick just tired. But I do shift work. I thought maybe it could be from constipation.

Hi and thanks for the details.

So it is lesion below the skin involving subcutaneous area, not related to constipation .

Needs attention to your doctor for assistance with antibiotics, anti inflammatory drugs to resolve it , before it gets flare up .
