I was very surprised when I found this site,i've been dealing with this issue for 2 yrs. Now. My doc. Sold me off believing I had a fatty tumor (no concern needed) but it is a big concern because it feels like the knot is getting larger, I notice it more when I lie down of the evening it feels as if their is a large ball under my lower left ribcage, when I press on it their is pain all around it, I was recently hit in that area and it seems to have aggrivated whatever it is even more. When i'm out working I dont notice it as bad unless I bump my side or when I try to relax in the evening i'm gonna try some of the things i've read on here ,i never realized that this many people have the same symptoms, I wish everyone the best

Upper right (epigastric) stomach bulge
I wonder also what this can be but mine is on the right side of my body right under my rib cage in the upper stomach region or (epigastric region). I have had it for a couple of years and it feels like a ball or balloon in my stomach. It doesn't hurt unless I stress my stomach. If I do crunches or sit ups I feel like the balloon is goin to burst thru my stomach! And that's when it is hurts. I have to hold that area pressing inward and the bursting sensation slowly subsides. Is this a hernia? Doctors don't seem to agree.
