Upper abdominal pain: There are a variety of reasons why you could have pain in this area. I would need a much more detailed history in order to render an opinion. With the studies you had being normal it is unlikely that you have a serious problem, but further evaluation may be necessary. ...Read more

Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (Definition)

The comprehensive metabolic panel (cmp) is a panel of blood tests that serves as an initial broad medical screening tool. The cmp provides a rough check of kidney function, liver function, and electrolyte and fluid balance. The cmp is an expanded version of the basic metabolic panel (bmp), which does not include liver tests. A cmp (or bmp) is usually ordered as part of ...Read more

Not to be scared: The right upper quadrant is often the site for gallbladder problems. Sometimes the gallbladder can cause problems without gallstones. You need to talk to your physician about seeing a guess urologist to help. Remember there are muscles ribs Cartlidge and other structures there along with the intestine All of which need to be evaluate ...Read more

CBC, CMP, lipase, amylase, upper endoscopy, abdominal US all NML- upper right abdominal painWhat are chances cancer w/All NML tests?

Not ccommon: Most of the tests are of no value in defining disease. Some will suggest pancreatic inflammation. With US and upper endoscopy normal probably not gall stones but occasionally inflammation in the GB can cause the pain you have. An abdominal CAT scan should define any inflammatory or even neoplastic process. ...Read more

Further work up: Is needed. Depending on the pain location, imaging studies may help in diagnosing your condition. Alternatively, an upper endoscopy would definitely help in ruling in or out esophageal and/ or gastric pathology. A gastroenterology consult would be appropriate in such circumstances. ...Read more

Pain RUQ under rib- 31 y/o- mom- CBC, CMP, lipase amalyse abdominal US and upper endoscopy NML- could this be cancer even w/all test nml? Doc said no.

Not likely...: Although a cancer diagnosis may be very unlikely, ongoing pain should be fully diagnosed. There are other imaging that may be appropriate in the evaluation of right upper quadrant pain.
The list of possibilities is long; Gall bladder, pancreas, ovaries, kidneys, ulcers, even musculoskeletal just to name a few. ...Read more

Pain RUQ-x6mos- dr says gall bladder but HIDA, CBC, CMP, lipase, amalyse, EGD and abdom US 6m ago nml- can this pancreatic cancer? 30 yo. No Weight loss

Pain RUQ-x6mos- dr says gall bladder but HIDA, CBC, CMP, lipase, amalyse, EGD and abdom US 6m ago nml- can this pancreatic cancer? 30 yo. No Weight loss

No...Second opinion: Not likely to be pancreatic cancer given the imaging you've had so far. There is a blood test you can get that you that might be reassuring. I suggest a second opinion to evaluate for something more usual such as sphincter dysfunction. In the meantime avoid foods that induce symptoms ...Read more

Unlikely..: But, you should speak with your primary. If this is ongoing, than there are certainly more imaging tests. An ultrasound could be done and is cheap painless with no radiation. If that doesn't show anything and the pain continues a CT may be useful. ...Read more

Many possibilities: You could have ulcer disease, acid reflux, hernia, gallbladder inflammation or stones, gastritis, or gastroenteritis, and so on. Is your pain acute or chronic, any triggers, etc? Lipase neg makes pancreatitis unlikely. US neg makes gall stones less likely. CMP nl means normal liver function and bilirubin. See your doctor or GI. Cancers usually not common in your age group. ...Read more

I have a high amylase level of 175, normal lipase, cmp, & CBC though. Should I worry. I was once told that amylase is a worthless test by a ER doctor?

I have a high amylase level of 175, normal lipase, cmp, & CBC though. Should I worry. I was once told that amylase is a worthless test by a ER doctor?

Isolated high amylas: Can be from different sources - pancreas as well as salivary glands for example. What made you ER docs draw these bloodtests - abdominal pain, I assume? If the amylase level wasn't too high and your symptoms have resolved, I wouldn't worry about it. If there are continued sxs, would follow it up with your PCP. ...Read more

Lipase (Definition)

Lipases, such as lipoprotein lipase and endothelial lipase, are enzymes that breakdown circulating triglycerides (tg). Specifically, lipases degrade tg rich lipoproteins including chylomicrons, very low density lipoprotein (vldl) and remnant particles produced by breakdown of chylomicron and vldl particles. Decreased lipase function leads to accumulation of ...Read more
