So for a few months now I've had this lump/hardness that comes and goes. One minute it won't be there, and the next I'll be feeling my abdomen and it will be there. It's a hardness just above my pubic bone (just above the hair, sorry if tmi) and when I press on it sometimes it makes me need to pee. I had a scan for it and the doctor said it was nothing to worry about and that I should get my hormones checked, but it's still coming and going and I'm slightly worried. Any ideas?? Thank you

      Possibly a hernia. Hernia's are very difficult to show on a test. I had ultrasound. MRI CT scan and they don't always show up. As they often disappear when lying down. I had to have a specific hernia scan to diagnose a femoral hernia.

      I was thinking it was a hernia but when I brought it up to the doctor she said I was "too young for a hernia"?? I'll ask them for a specific hernia scan and hopefully that can help me out. Thank you
