Brief Answer:
Needs clinical evaluation and investigations as mentioned.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your feedback.
Since there is a lump there has to be a reason.
The possible causes can be:
Impacted fecolith.
Hernia if this enlarges on coughing/straining and reduces on pressure.
Mass/cyst for internal organ.
Hence I would advise you the following:
Clinical evaluation by a Doctor, preferably a General Surgeon.
Ultrasonography and CT scan to confirm.
Other investigations as p[er the clinical findings to get an appropriate diagnosis so that a proper management can be done.

I hope this answer helps you.
