My upper right abdomen - about 3 inches above the navel and 1,5 inches to the right - hurts to the touch. When I press I feel little tiny nodules. Otherwise I don't feel sick, don't have stomach problems. In about 2 weeks I will have a lingual (sp?) hernia operation on that side. Can that have anything to do with it? What can it be - I think of things like a tumor/growth or some kind of diverulitis? Or are there little nodules there which can be felt under the skin? Thanks for any help.
