Thank you! The expand/contract behavior of a weakness sounds like a good descriptor of what I noticed, since the bulge comes and goes based on breathing in deep/clamping down and doesn’t seem to be filled with anything.

If the bulge does represent a weakness, are there any proactive, nonsurgical measures to take for the sake of strengthening it or preventing further deterioration?

Intuitively (based on my completely non-medical reasoning) the idea of a weakness makes sense; I felt like I may have overworked some of the other hip area muscles working out over the past few days, so I wonder if that makes other weaknesses more apparent?

Perhaps I should find out if my friend in radiology is running any research studies involving collection of abdominal CT/MR images of subjects and get a “free look” at what’s really in there…
