Hi.
Is the lump superficial or located inside the abdominal cavity?
An enlarged intra abdominal organ located in the epigastic area (area above the belly button) can present with a vague abdominal mass in that area.  The organs located in the epigastric area could be the stomach, left liver lobe, part of the pancreas, and part of the transverse colon.
Since you are having symptoms, it would be best to seek consult with your doctor so that you can be evaluated properly.
Good luck.
