Causes Of Painless Lump On Upper Left Abdomen
CT Scan benefit outweigh the risk? I'm 23 with 3 CT scans already. Doctors concerned about chronic upper left abdomen pain radiating to back.
Depends: It depends on what your dr is concerned about. CT scans do provide significant radiation exposure. Some causes of left upper abdominal pain can e assessed by ultrasound or endoscopy, depending on your other symptoms and risks. If however, your doctor can provide good reason why CT scan is necessary, then it is probably worth doing. You can always seek a second opinion.
I have a smooth hard lump in my upper left abdomen. It is painful when prodded. There is nothing to see externally but it is easily felt.
My 2 year old son has a soft lump on his upper left abdomen it doesn't seem to be painful but is very visible should I be concerned?
Some thoughts...: Any new painful lump should be checked out by your doctor soon. It's really hard to say without a thorough exam or more history. Some thoughts include a sebaceous cyst, a lipoma, a blood collection from trauma, or the beginning of an abscess formation. Good luck and be sure to get it checked out!
I have a rubbery moveable lump around upper left abdomen muscles and rib, I can move it on the rib when I flex, its around 2cm, what could it be?
Yesterday, I noticed a slight lump/bulge on my upper left abdomen below my rib cage after dinner. It is not painful. Is this anything to worry about?
Not yet.: I wouldn't worry too much just yet. It could be a harmless cyst or deposit of fat called a lipoma. It's something your doc should check out - not urgently, though. If it's not painful and you have no other symptoms, it could be done within 1-2 weeks.
I have occasional pain in my upper left abdomen, gallbladder is removed, soft lump on arch of right foot. I was told after gallbladder was removed I had a bit of fatty build up. But I didn't need to change my diet. Could this be a liver issue?
Gastroenterologist: I recommend an evaluation by a gastroenterologist. Causes of left upper abdominal discomfort include disorders of spleen, stomach, pancreas, common bile duct or portions of the colon which takes a 90 degree turn there and can cause gas entrapment. I don't consider the liver or complications of gall bladder surgery to be a cause of your discomfort.
A fatty lump grew at the left side of my abdomen. Scan shows its just fat lump. What caused it and how can I get rid of it please? I am worried.
Surgical removal: You can visit your local plastic surgeon.
I have a small lump, maybe a little less than an inch long, on the left of my abdomen, next to my rib cage. It does not hurt. Should I be concerned?
How long?: If it has been there for long time it is probably benign such as q cyst or fatty tumor. If it is recent there are other possibilities which would require a minor biopsy for a definite diagnosis and treatment.
Get it seen: It may be nothing more than a dermatofibroma, but any new mass needs to be seen by a physician.
Just found a small hard lump on my lower right abdomen. Lump is painless, what could be the cause?
Where?: Is the hard lump under the skin or inside the abdomen? You need to be examined by a doctor for proper assessment and diagnosis. Any opinion as to what the lump might be would be guessing. Good luck
Really small lump (marble like size) not visible but palpable (but only when you really press on the abdomen) in the lower left abdomen. Painless?
Keep an eye: Keep an eye on this lump. If it begans to enlarge over time, your doctor may refer you to a surgeon for removal and analysis under a microscope. However, as long as it doesn't bother you, undergoing an operation is likely to do more harm than good. Hang in there!!
Cause for 2 soft, immovable, painless lumps in abdomen; RUQ (3") and LUQ (4"), medial and directly inferior to the rib cage?
Depends: If just under the skin they are likely lipomas. Anytime you have a new mass it should be examined by a physician. In the place you described a lipoma is most common and is typically just below the skin level, but these are generally slightly mobil.
I got a lump that started near my belly button with no pain, but it moved and now it is in my upper abdomen on the left side. What does that mean?
Lipoma: Lipoma is a common benign fatty tumor that feels like rolling under the skin. These may be 2 different lesions one near the umbilicus and one in the area where you see now or with the growth of your body could have moved up.

I found a lump below my sternum on my abdomen. It is dead center left to right. It is painless. Also, ive become dizzy and tired. Is this related?
Sounds benign: But if I were you I would have a doctor palpate this mass and get some more information. My guess is that it is insignificant and has nothing much to do with either your dizziness or tiredness. Please feel free to peruse my page and write to me if the spirit moves you: www. Healthtap.
