If not lymph nodes, then what?

I can feel at least half a dozen lumps in my lower abdominal area, all of which are rather hard, and some of which are a bit tender, but none of them hurt on their own.

These lumps are not visible, but I can easily find them with a little applied finger pressure. I asked a doctor about this, and he assured me it was not lymph nodes, but then failed to suggest what they COULD be.

I'm not worried, I only wonder.

If these lumps are not lymph nodes, what could they be?

Re: If not lymph nodes, then what?

I have regular daily bowel movements. These lumps have been here for quite some time - I know I have read that hard lumps in the abdomen can sometimes be fecal matter, but I don't think it's such in my case.
