Yes: But uncertain what you have already had done. Usually would want to start with a history & physical exam with your doctor & blood & urine tests. The locations of pains do not always indicate which organ may be the cause of pains. Ultrasound can see organs, and sometimes a ct or MRI may be better. Each person's conditions may indicate which testing is best.
