Diagnosed recently cll stage 0 but just started having abdominal pain left side, feeling bloated. Wbc 13, 000. Will i need chemo if nodes in abdomen?

Here's an idea: Today, it's customary to subtype cll by its genetic markers. It's actually about a dozen different diseases, some aggressive, some not. I'll bet that your hematologist has already done this, and your tumor mutation / translocation profile will be more helpful as a guide to treatment. Whether your spleen is big or not is much less of a factor than other parameters. ...Read more

Belly Pain (Definition)

Belly pain is also known as Abdominal pain. Abdominal pain is pain that you feel anywhere between your chest and groin. This is often referred to as the stomach region or belly. Almost everyone experiences pain in the abdomen at one time or another. Most of the time, it is not caused by a serious medical problem. There are many organs in the abdomen. Pain in the abdomen can originate from any one of them, including: Organs related to digestion -- the end of the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas The aorta -- a large blood vessel that runs straight down the inside of the abdomen The appendix -- an organ in the lower right abdomen that no longer serves much function The kidneys -- two bean-shaped organs that lie deep within the abdominal cavity The spleen -- an organ involved in blood maintenance and infection control However, the pain may start from somewhere else -- like your chest or pelvic area. You may also have a generalized infection, such as the flu or strep throat, that affects many parts of your body. The intensity of the pain does not always reflect the seriousness of the condition causing the pain. Severe abdominal pain can be from mild conditions, such as gas or the cramping of viral gastroenteritis. On the other hand, relatively mild pain or no pain may be present with life-threatening conditions, such as cancer of the ...Read more

Why am i having sharp pain left side of stomach near belly button?

Why am i having sharp pain left side of stomach near belly button?

Need more info!: Abdominal pain can be an emergency to a mild problem. Let's begin by seeing your primary care doctor. I can't even recommend otc meds because: i don't know enough about your symptoms; i don't know if you have tried anything. The shortcut. See your doc. If you have none- a walk in clinic! but one thing. Pain near the belly button suggests a small intestinal cause! ...Read more

Could be a hernia: Small hernias at the belly button can cause this type of pain. They are typically characterized by a small lump under the skin. Having said that, the belly button is the site of referred pain from the midgut portion of the intestines, and could signal an intestinal problem brewing, such as appendicitis. See your dr. If worse or persistent. ...Read more

Constant severe abdominal pain, left side. Worse with movement. Any ideas?

Constant severe abdominal pain, left side. Worse with movement. Any ideas?

Sounds urgent: I'm not sure how long this has been going on, but if it's been less than a a week, you should go to an emergency room asap. Even at age 33, diverticulitis is a possibility, as is a tubo-ovarian abscess. If it has present for more than a week, you may be able to sort it out as an outpatient, but don't wait. If primary care not available, go to the ER. Hope this helps! ...Read more
