Lumps In The Abdomen When The Supine Position.?
Hello doctor, I want to ask why when I sleep on my back the upper abdomen appears like a lump but after being pressed it disappears and appears again
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Complaints of a stomach lump that you experience can occur due to several possibilities, including:
Abnormal tissue growth or tumor
Muscle knots or twisting of muscles
These possibilities may still be widened and must be confirmed again by direct examination. Much information is needed such as when this condition occurred, how big is the lump, has this happened in the past, is there pain, is there a habit of lifting heavy loads or straining too hard, and so on. Our advice, you should check yourself to a general practitioner or may go directly to the surgeon. By looking directly, misunderstanding can be minimized and the handling can be more precise.
Meanwhile, if there are no other symptoms, there is no need to worry too much, but still prioritize seeing a doctor. Avoid lifting heavy loads and pushing too hard, multiply water consumption, and do not need to press or touch the lump. So, hopefully answering your question.
