An unusual growth near the abdominal area does not necessarily mean that you have cancer.
For example, Crohn disease or bowel obstruction can cause many tender, sausage-shaped masses anywhere in the abdomen. Similarly, liver enlargement (hepatomegaly) can cause a firm, irregular mass below the right rib cage, or on the left side in the stomach area. However, Cancer of the colon, liver or kidney can also cause a mass almost anywhere in the abdomen.
So, getting a routine physical exam will be the best approach for you and to follow up on the abnormal mass according to your physicians advice. If he/she advice's you to take a cancer screening, it is the best choice to listen to their instructions.
