Hi everybody!
Iv'e had this swollen area to the right of my belly button and it has been 2 years since i had it. it is a few millimeters high but has a radius of 4-5 cm i haven't had any pain or anything like that and i was concerned about colon cancer but i checked all the symptoms for colon cancer and there is no symptom that fits me. for the past few months i have been monitoring my stool for blood and haven't found even a bit. And by the way it hasn't increased or decreased its size.
Thanks,

This would not be a symptom of colon cancer since the tumor would be inside the colon.

This sounds a bit more like a hernia.
