In one study, hemangiomas greater than 10 cm in size cause symptoms of fullness or pain in 90% of the patients. Follow up with your gastroenterologist or your surgeon. Good luck. ...Read more

? Gall gall bladder: I would go immediately to an ultrasound of the gall bladder if you have not had that. If it is negative, you should have a hida nuclear medicine scan to look for biliary dyskinesia. If either are positive, you should see a surgeon about a laparoscopic cholecystectomy. If negative, you should see a GI specialist for further evaluation. ...Read more

Do higher amount of gas for a month & stomach pain around belly button for a week (gets relieved after motion) indicate stomach ulcer or liver tumor ?

Neither: Try to alter your diet to see if that brings relief. If that does not help, you should consult a doctor for the stomach pain as that may be due H pylori infection. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Could be a hernia: Increasing pressure in the abdominal area can cause a defect in the abdominal wall muscular to become apparent, which is called a hernia. If there is a bulge that you feel, or mass, this may be the intestinal contents protruding through, called a 'ventral hernia.' this can be normal in babies, but should be evaluated by your doctor in an adult. ...Read more

I have a profound "heartbeat" in abdomen. Just above belly button. Should i be concerned about this?

I have a profound "heartbeat" in abdomen. Just above belly button. Should i be concerned about this?

Prior : Prior to answering your question, avvo's terms of use state, "such information should be used only as a starting point for addressing your medical issues. It is not a substitute for medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. You should not disregard medical advice from your doctor, or avoid obtaining medical care, due to any health information you obtain on the site." without knowing your age, eating habits, body habitus (weight, bmi), complete blood count and other lab tests, past medical history, a simple "no" or "yes" answer will not suffice. I would recommend visiting your primary care physician to discuss all of these. In general, thin individuals when laying flat on their back, can see their abdominal aorta (i.e. "heartbeat" in the abdomen) pulsating which delivers oxygen to the lower parts of your body, and this is normal. However, if you are having symptoms, have a past history or family history of "heart problems", it would be wise to discuss this with your physician. ...Read more

For the last two days I have been experiencing pulling and pinching in my lower left abdomen. It is the left and lower than my belly button.

Nonspecific: No specific diagnosis can be attached to this. Most likely an abdominal muscle problem. Could also be GYN related, a rare type of hernia (Spigelian), diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and even an umbilical hernia. Best to get a more complete evaluation with your primary care provider, the timing depends on duration and severity of symptoms. Hope this helps! ...Read more
