Hi, As I was scrolling down the boards this caught my eye and thought I could help u out. I had the same thing. It was also seen on a catscan. It really isnt a huge deal but it wont go away on it's own. I had a child and I am pretty sure that is what caused mine. I went ahead and has it fixed. Not a big deal at all, the doc didnt even use mesh because it was a small amount of fat just like yours. I havent had any issues. Had it done January of 2012. If you have any questions feel free to ask. ;)
