Hello and hope you are doing well.

Abdominal hernias are usually placed in the mid line. The 'lump' could be a sebaceous cyst, a lipoma, or lymph nodes. If there is accompanying swelling, redness, discharge and fever it is most probably an infection. You may need to consult your primary care physician who will examine you and initiate appropriate therapy.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
