Hi,

Best option is to speak to the GP t-rrow, and be frank. If it was something urgent, he/she would likely have advised more expedient action e.g. Walk-in Ctre OR A & E. The possible causes depend on several factors - your age e.g. some diseases are more common ion older people e.g. most cancers], gender [e.g. it could be a gynaecological problem], where on abdomen distension + lump are, is there any pain, any other symptoms e.g. blood per rectum OR constipation/feeling nauseated, any recent change in weight, lethargy, etc etc etc.

IT IS DANGEROUS TO RELY ON REMOTE ADVICE ONLINE, so get professional advice LIVE face to face.

Don't worry about it. It's not going to do you any good. If it was anything really urgent they would have probably sent you to an out of hours. Even if this is something unpleasant they know about it now and that's the first step to getting better.
And of course it could be something totally not a big deal, but because of the unpleasant symptoms they want to deal with it quickly for you.

Whatever it is you'll find out tomorrow. Until then there's nothing you can do so just chill out with some happy movies or something and try not to think about it.
