Abdominal lump under right of rib cage

Oct 24, 2007 - 0 comments

I recently noticed a lump on the right side of my abdomine.  There was no sign of it before and was only found out  as of recent.  The interesting thing about it is that it appears about an inch above an existing scar.  The scar comes from a surgery I had as a child, about 26 years ago, for a fatty tumor that was removed. Is it possible that the newer lump is coming in connection with the original, or should I fear the possibility of a liver issue.  The inflamation is at the base of the rib cage, where, as I understand it, might indicate a liver issue.  Any thoughts as to what might be causing such a sudden appearance?  Thanks for any help.
