    Robbo:
    Lumps are common but they are not normal and should be checked by a doctor. Usually they are nothing to worry about the attached link will instruct you on how to do a proper self exam.

      Hi Robbo:

      Based on the area you circled on that image, it could be a cyst in the skin, a swollen lymph node or possibly an inguinal hernia. As Dadmo says you should have a doctor check it out.

      Best wishes,

      Tho' much is taken, much abides; and though we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are; one equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will; to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

        Being that high up it would seem to me (in my unproffesional opinion) that the lump is a hernia........
