I noticed a pea sized lump in my stomach, how to get rid of it ?

Hello, I am a 23 year old female. A few months ago I noticed a pea sized lump in my stomach, well under the skin in my fat. I have since noticed several around the body which hurt a bit when they are pressed, especially around my belly button. I have been referred for an ultrasound as I have a lump about the diameter of a 10p, that hasn t grown (has been the same size). I would just like to know if you had any ideas of what they might be? I have other symptoms too like constipation and occasional twinges (down below) I m not due to start my period for another few weeks. Thanks

it may be umbilicus hernia as your suffering from constipation or may be lipoma.
it is very difficult to tell without examination.so better consult doctor who can examine and diagnose accordingly.
good luck

Hi welcome to healthcare Magic

There are many reasons for the cause of swelling in the abdomen.. It can be sebacious cycst, dermoid cycst, lipoma, etc.. A detailed clinical examination is required. USG (ultrasound) of abdomen is will be done.. If necessary they will take biopsy to find the cause.. treatment in all above cases is surgery, excision of the lump....

Thank you for your diagnosis. The first doctor I saw said that the lump down below was gristle whereas the second doctor couldn't feel it or anything on my abdomen but he mentioned a possible hernia. If they are lymph nodes what is the treatment?
Thank you
