Re: pea sized lump near naval
You could have a small hernia. The belly button is a common area to have hernia's. These can be easily repaired, and should be taken care of early.
You may want to avoid excessive exertion, lifting, straining, sports...until you are seen by your doctor. if you have a hernia, it is not an emergency situation, so you have time to have a proper diagnosis, and treatment, without worrying yourself to death in the mean time.
