Hi,
Lately I can feel and see a long kind of lump in my lower right pelvis, from the lowest part until the pelvic bone. I think it is my bowel (if they even go that low) because it has that shape. I wonder if it is normal that I can visibly see a lump where my bowel is? I don't know if I could always see it like that, but now I noticed it because I often have discomfort in that area (which also worries me).
I am pretty skinny, even a little underweight because of stress, so it could be that. But then I guess I would see it on the other side too and that is not the case. Can anyone else see / feel a lump like this?

Do any heavy lifting lately? I wonder if it could be a hernia. Though you'd probably be in more pain with that.

It sounds like stool to me. Are you constipated? It's easy to feel in a thin person.
