Hi and welcome.

Anything hard to touch in the abdomen should be thoroughly evaluated it can be anything from abdominal cyst to any growth with in stomach, enlarged liver or spleen or pancreas. I would suggest you to get it thoroughly examined by your doctor and an ultrasound or CT scan to rule out anything serious.
