Very small chance...: ...Given that you're 20 years old, but nothing's impossible. You may want to review the many healthtap answers regarding causes ; cures for lower abdominal discomfort, but your best reassurance will come from your doctor after appropriate exam ; tests prove unremarkable. Be well--.
