Lump
My 5yr old has a small lump on her abdomen. It is above her belly button but below her breasts. I have noticed it a while ago and she has now come to me to ask what it is. It is not painfull. Can you please advise on this?

You will have to consult your doctor for an examination, as this lump can be one of many causes. You should not be concerned, as this lump can merely be a hernia that can easily be corrected.
