Default lumps on abdomen?

Hey, I found out that the lump i found in my abdomen wasnt a hernia...the doctor wasn't concerned at all..she said it could be a vericose vein, or even messentary tissue...she said "i don't think it's a hernia or a tumor..."

...this sounds disconcerting to me...she doesn't "think?"....have any of you had weird lumps and bumps on your tummy? It's below the skin and muscle, and it's a fixated lump..sort of oblong and it's not tender. I do worry that it COULD be a tumor sometimes....

Get a 2nd opinion. Soon.
Sorry to be blunt. I've lost too many people in the past few years.
Take care!
