Doctor can examine: There are many things in the abdomen. A primary care doctor can evaluate to see if it is constipation, another bowel problem, a liver or gall bladder problem, a kidney problem, a hernia or some other abdominal issue. The doctor may order some blood and urine tests, and may order an abdominal scan such as an ultrasound scan to look inside the belly.
