Aortic Pulsation In Abdomen
When lying on my back, I notice pulsation of my abdomen. I told my dr and he said im still too young for an aneurysm. Do I still need to worry?
Probably your aorta: Most reasonably lean people who can relax their ab muscles can feel their own aortas. Many people never discover it. If it's a very large pulsatile mass, ask your physician if it's normal -- or compare yours and what you can feel on your friends / partner / other people you know well. ...Read more
I'm feeling a pulsation in my lower right abdomen. It's becoming more prominent and frequent. Possibilities of what this may be? Recommendations?

Patients at greatest risk for abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) are those who are older than 65 years and have peripheral atherosclerotic vascular disease, a history of smoking, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and hypertension. If this profile fits you, you need to see a doctor for evaluation and imaging studies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A simple ultrasound will sort that out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
