Pain near belly button

I have been having pain next to my belly button (right side of my abdomin).

The pain is mild. But since it has been going on for almost 2 weeks, I am slowly getting a little worried about it.

I feel like the pain is just right under the skin. I think the area is called "subcutaneous fat". I can actually squeeze the fat tissue where the pain comes from with my thumb and index finger. When I squeeze it, I feel like something is swollen there. It feels like a swollen tube shape tissue that extends from near the belly button to the side of the abdomin.

I was not really worried about it before because the pain is quite away from the internal organs. But the pain has been going on for two weeks. So I start thinking more about it now.

Could it possibly be any form of cancer?
