4 the last year experiencing discomfort in the left lower quadrant of my abdominal cavity. What could be the problem and how could I treat the issue?
A variety of things: Within the left lower quadrant, lies the sigmoid colon (part of the large intestine), the left ovary (females), and the left kidney ureter. Evaluation and treatment will depend on associated symptoms, e.g. diarrhea, constipation, blood in urine or stool, presence of mass and nature of discomfort. See a gastroenterologist if this persists or worsens.

I am experiencing abdominal mass below left rib cage just off center. It feels to be an inch or so in size. It does not move and is sore to touch.?
Need hands on exam: See your doctor and have it examined
Abnormal structure: This means there is something abnormal on a physical exam (doctor can feel the abnormality) or something seen on an imaging study, such as an Xray or CT scan. This abnormality occupies space, it has physical dimensions, unlike something like an abnormal blood test. Many possible causes, fluid collection, intestine distended with gas, most serious would be a cancer.
There is No differen: A mass is same as a lump, there is no difference!
I am experiencing abdominal lump. The following also describes me: Abdominal mass. What should I do?
Hard to say: Without more information but would recommend seeing your doctor to get a better idea what is going on and have an exam.
Depends: On what the mass is. Some are benign tumors, hernias, abscesses, or malignant tumors and depending on what it is and where it is and if caught early, can be curable. Without more specifics, I can't say anything more. Just don't ignore a detectable mass. Get it diagnosed and treated.
See a doctor: You are young to get cancer or to be concerned about such, and I do not know what you are feeling or what your specific concerns are. Cancers may have no symptoms at all for a long tine period. Would need to see a doctor for a physical examination.
Not necessarily.: "mass" is a vague term often used to describe a lump found on physical examination. Possible causes include those arising from the abdominal wall or from within the abdominal cavity. This finding warrants a more detailed search, which may include an ultrasound +/- a ct of the abdomen. As we like to say, "walk before you run": don't reach too many conclusions until your doctor completes their eval.See 1 more doctor answer
Pressure-Related: An abdominal mass can be due to many different diseases, some trivial, others life threatening (hernia, cancer, benign tumor, aneurysm, infection, etc.). Symptoms vary with the cause & location of the mass and its rate of growth. In general, if pushing against other organs, pain is common (although, slow growing tumors can reach large sizes while "flying under the radar").
