Lump in the abdomen while lifting weights. Enlarged lymph node?

My son told me he noticed a marble sized lump in his lower abdomen while lifting weights. he said it wasnt causing anyn pain and he might not have known it except the weights brushed his lower abdomen and the area feels a little tender, like a bruise . Could it be an enlarged lymph node or a hernia? I told him to keep an eye out for a few days and if no better, he should go see a dr. Good advice?

hi there, your observation is quite corrrect and it could be a hernia or a lymph node or any other growth which could be benign like a lipoma or a sebaceous cyst to name a few, or may be something more serious. You will need to visit a doctor who will examine it and then initiate proper treatment if required. Till then take care.
