    HEllo sir....this is probably best seen and examined.how long have you had it.it sounds very much like a hernia.this is a protrusion of your abdominal contents through a weakness in your abdominal muscles.It's corrected with a minor surgical operation.it can become complicated if it "hooks"...cAusing pain,strangulation or obstruction thus cAusing you to need emergency surgery.please have it checked out for confirmation and treatment.cheers
