There could be several reasons for this but ultimately that is for a veterinarian to decide. If your rabbit is female is could be pregnant. It could also be a hernia or many, many other things. The best thing to do is to take your rabbit to the veterinarian for a proper diagnosis.

Rabbits can get cancer although it is rare. Sometimes they get cysts, or abscesses. If it's a cyst it is most likely harmless although it's best to have a vet check it out. If it's an abscess then you need to go to the vet to have it drained. An abscess is an infected puncture wound.
