Belly Pain (Definition)

Abdominal pain is pain that you feel anywhere between your chest and groin. This is often referred to as the stomach region or belly. Almost everyone experiences pain in the abdomen at one time or another. Most of the time, it is not caused by a serious medical problem. There are many organs in the abdomen. Pain in the abdomen can originate from any one of them, including: Organs related to digestion -- the end of the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas The aorta -- a large blood vessel that runs straight down the inside of the abdomen The appendix -- an organ in the lower right abdomen that no longer serves much function The kidneys -- two bean-shaped organs that lie deep within the abdominal cavity The spleen -- an organ involved in blood maintenance and infection control However, the pain may start from somewhere else -- like your chest or pelvic area. You may also have a generalized infection, such as the flu or strep throat, that affects many parts of your body. The intensity of the pain does not always reflect the seriousness of the condition causing the pain. Severe abdominal pain can be from mild conditions, such as gas or the cramping of viral gastroenteritis. On the other hand, relatively mild pain or no pain may be present with life-threatening conditions, such as cancer of the ...Read more

Can a CT scan properly diagnosis a hernia or abdominal pain?

Can a CT scan properly diagnosis a hernia or abdominal pain?

Can be helpfun : Ct is good looking at structural objects in the abdomen but unless the hernia is through the wall or bulging into it they may not see it at all. Looking for the source of pain is always frustrating with a ct but it can reassure that organs like the ovaries, pancreas and kidneys and other organs are looking normal. It looks a macro structure not on a cellular basis though. It is valuable as workup. ...Read more

Been having upper abdominal pain, had colonoscopy and endoscopy. Reviled a hiatai hernia. Is the hernia causing the upper ab pain?

Been having upper abdominal pain, had colonoscopy and endoscopy. Reviled a hiatai hernia. Is the hernia causing the upper ab pain?

Maybe: Hiatal hernia is very common, but they are not all the same. Large ones can certainly cause pain, along with difficulty swallowing or reflux/heartburn. Patients commonly attribute many nonspecific symptoms to a hiatal hernia, and more often than not the hiatal hernia is not the cause. See a general surgeon with experience in hiatal hernia repair for a consult if its that bad. Best of luck! ...Read more
