Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
If she is telling the truth, then the lower stomach swelling can be from a tumor in the stomach.
Benign tumors like fibroids can be seen commonly in the uterus giving pregnant appearance.
Also excees fat accumulation can give an appearance of swelling as well commonly.
An ultrasound will be good to check for the cause.
