I have just noticed there has been an bulge in my upper stomach. But when i tense (or flex my abs) my stomach becomes flat. But when i dont, you can kinda see the upper part of my stomach bulge out more than the lower.
Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!
What you have âa bulge between the umbilicus and the lower end of breast boneâ can be an epigastric hernia. The stomach or intestine bulge out through a weakening in the muscle wall. Please get a surgeon to examine this. Meanwhile do not lift anything heavy or push hard. Hope this helps. Take care!
