It is always a good idea to discuss observed symptoms with your pediatrician. Keeping a log of your symptoms may help in better discerning the origin of your symptoms. Spleen is located in described location, the large bowel also angles down around that area and commonly pain is due to musculoskeletal wall related issues.
