Painless Lump on Upper Left of Abdomen?

Answer

A painless lump on the upper left of the abdomen could be nothing or could indicate something more serious. A doctor should be consulted but it doesn't have to be an emergency visit. Most likely it is a harmless cyst or a deposit of fat called a lipoma. If there are no other symptoms and it stays pain free, it will likely disappear after one or two weeks. If it does not go away, then it could be a more serious condition.
