What's this mass?

Hernia filter: I have a protrusion under my belly button on the right side, almost parallel to the hip bone. You can only see it if I lean back, but then it is very visible. It's about 4 inches long, 1.5 inches wide and is spongy (almost like a gas bubble or bloat). It does not hurt. Hernia?

2. I have a dr. appt on Monday. The nurse told me that if it wasn't painful then I could wait.
3. I lift heavy and just did deadlifts twice this week (including yesterday). I weigh about 127 and lifted 100 pounds in straight-leg and regular deadlifts this week.
4. I am a woman, age 33, lifting heavy (steadily) for about a year. I have a trainer and my form is proper.
Any ideas what it could be besides a hernia? Should I try to get into a doctor today?
