Lumps in stomach

Wasn't really sure where to put this!
I'm a 17 year old girl, very skinny, and can feel lumps in my lower left stomach. There's 3 or 4, sometimes I can't find them all and they all move varying amounts when pressed on. I'm naturally concerned about serious causes of these but was also wondering if, because I'm skinny, it was possible to feel stool through the outer bowel like this? I was also possibly considering ovarian cysts as an option.
Thank-you!

Hello and hope you are doing well.

It could be lymph nodes what you are palpating. It could also be lipomas, if it is in the abdominal wall. If it is hard feces, it can be palpable through a thin abdominal wall. If you develop any related symptoms, like nausea/vomiting, abdominal pain or bleeding per rectum, consult your doctor for an evaluation.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
