Hello, you are greeted by the doctor Franklin de Jesus waiting to be able to help with my response to your question.
There that to reject the possibility that this protuberance is not a process herniario. In case of the hernias they tend to increase with the effort. First of all the first thing is a good diagnosis to know about that it treats itself exactly and on the basis of this diagnosis we will indicate the treatment treating the reasons that caused the above mentioned protuberance.

I would recommend you see a board-certified general surgeon to see if you have a hernia or just a separation of the muscles. And, I would suggest you do this sooner than later. Some true hernias could cause major problems if not treated.
If you do not have a true hernia, then go see an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your issues.
