A 38-year-old male asked:
Disclaimer

I have bad pain coming from my lower left rib spine area could this be my spleen?

Possibly: The spleen is under your left lower ribs closer to the front. The kidney is in the back. Each can be causing pain under the ribs. I recommend a full examination by a physician.
