RUQ abdominal pain: When you say you "went drinking", what do you mean exactly? 2 drinks? 5 drinks? too many to count? You should be evaluated by a doctor. They may want to check your blood to evaluate your liver and your pancreas, and to lay hands on your abdomen. ...Read more

My lower abdomen is bloated even when I excersise.I don't have any fungus.I don't drink gas drinks. What should I do?

Hmmmm: no simple answer to this. Either way, it is likely benign diagnosis. Try to achieve more frequent bowel movements. Simethicone (gas x) maybe helpful. If simethicone doesn't help, stop. It doesn't help everyone. Try to drink and eat slowly to prevent overswallowering of air. One thing your doctor can do is to look at your GU system, making sure your uterus is healthy. Hope this helps. ...Read more

In addition, other causes of abdominal distention may be unrelated to the cancer, such as liver disease. See your physician. ...Read more

I always have a bloated abdomen. My doc says it's related to perimeno. Would I always be bloated from this? I'm concerned I may have a tumor.

I always have a bloated abdomen. My doc says it's related to perimeno. Would I always be bloated from this? I'm concerned I may have a tumor.

Possibly: Bloating is typically a symptom that is related to distention or gas in the bowel. Hormone changes during menopause can effect the motility of the bowel and therefore result in bloating. This can also be a symptom of ovarian cancer so a person should be thoroughly evaluated to rule out more serious causes before saying it is hormonal or dietary related. ...Read more
