Lump in left side of lower abdomen

Just like the title states... on the left side of my lower abdomen there is something sticking out. Nothing is sticking out on the other side. I am getting pain from where it is. It is kind of oval shape and I can push it back in... Any ideas?

Also if it makes any difference, I am young.

It sounds like it could be a hernia, but you better show your parents since all we can do is give our opinion.

Not life threatening if taken care of in time; I still urge you to show your parents to have it looked at by a doctor.

Could be Diverticulitis.

There is usually a lump associated,on left lower quadrant.

I think i may have this also.

The best test is a CT Scan.

Re: Lump in left side of lower abdomen

youve made me paranoid. i have a lump on the left side. the only problem is i had my appendix removed and a twisted bowel on the right hand side so that could be the discrepancy. i will try and find out more though.
