Brief Answer:
It needs to be further evaluated

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome.
I have gone through your query.
It is difficult to precisely say what it is without examination.
I would like to know more about the lump that you have mentioned
Since when you have it?
Is it painful to touch?
Is it moveable?

In my clinic I would have asked for few investigation like complete blood count, sputum for AFB examination to rule out tuberculosis and ultrasound abdomen.
One examibation, If required I would have asked for FNAC of the lump to know what it is.

So I would suggest you to see local doctor for examination and you can discuss with them regarding this investigation.

This provisional advice provided by me is based entirely on the input provided to me. I would suggest examination by the doctor.

I hope this suggestion might be of some help to you.
Take care.
