Doubt related, but: Distinguish fatty liver (steatosis) from fatty liver with abnormal liver tests (steatohepatitis). Best to start with a weight loss diet based on calorie and fat restriction, avoid alcohol, control diabetes & cholesterol (if present). Your doctor will likely want to monitor your labwork, image the liver, & rule out other diseases that can mimick the pattern of liver tests seen with fatty changes. ...Read more

Lipoma: Often times these are lipomas, which are simply benign masses of fatty tissue.

As with any lesion, if there is significant increase in size, or significant pain, redness, discoloration, or any other concerning sign, do see a physician. ...Read more

OB Abdomen Pain: Pain in the right upper quadrant can certainly be positional due to the baby. However, there are other conditions that may cause right upper quadrant pain such as acid reflux, gallbladder disease, or even pre-eclampsia. For position discomfort due to the baby, try resting on the floor on your hands and knees with you abdomen freely hanging. ...Read more

I have a bump under my left rib cage where spleen is. It's pretty large. The doctor thinks I have mono. Is it normal to see the swollen spleen?

I have a bump under my left rib cage where spleen is. It's pretty large. The doctor thinks I have mono. Is it normal to see the swollen spleen?

Confusing question: If you can feel a bulge under your left rib cage it could be a swollen spleen.You would usually never feel one as it is usually tucked down close to the kidney and deep in the abdomen. Mono has many symptoms and a swollen spleen is one of them.You should avoid any physical activity that could increase the risk of trauma to the spleen (horseriding, bicycle riding etc.). ...Read more
