I sometimes have "stinging"mild pain in left iliac fossa. Went to a gynechologist and she said it looked like it is my bowel that causes the pain. How?

Watch it: Many meningiomas don't change in size and it's safe to watch them over time.

I would be concerned about an abscess, for example. Would a needle biopsy be advisable? Is an exploratory operation indicated? ...Read more
