    I am not medically trained but I wonder if it could be a hernia? My friend had one and the symptoms sound quite similar.

    Is it always hard or just when you are constipated? Which side is it on, the left or right. It could be a small hernia as the bowel will press into that and you could feel some stool there. It could be a cyst as well. Unfortunately you won't know until you get it checked. There are many benign things that can cause that. Think positively about it. ****
