Large lump left side stomach can this couse discomfert. The area around it sometimes hurts or feels odd. Its been therr 5yrs. Getting bigger each year?

If it has been there for 5 years it's most likely not a malignant tumor, but i recommend seeing your physician to sort it out. ...Read more

I have large pea size lump on left side stomach been there for 5yrs. Getting bigger each year. Some times feels like size goes up and down. Discomfert?

Cyst or lipoma: If this lump is just under the skin, and changes in size, it is likely an inclusion cyst, a benign growth related to the skin elements. Sometimes a fatty tumor, or lipoma, can present this way, and is also a benign condition. See your physician if you have concerns, as most can be excised in the office under local anesthesia. ...Read more

11 wks post delivery: If you had a C-section, the "lump" is probably a hematoma, or stitch abscess. If you had a normal delivery, this mass could be a hernia or a torn abdominal muscle. See your OB physician for an exam. All of the above are easily treated. ...Read more

I've had a lump on the left side of my lower abdomen which is not visible when I'm lying down. It hurt particularly after a large meal.

After eating, the colon tries to empty itself, &when the colon tries to squeeze a large amount of stool it can be painful.

Burning sensation which started in left abdomen maybe ovaries after a very heavy period it has moved around my body to right side abdomen both breasts and front of calves what could be causing this i also have a lot of relatively large fibroids?

Burning sensation which started in left abdomen maybe ovaries after a very heavy period it has moved around my body to right side abdomen both breasts and front of calves what could be causing this i also have a lot of relatively large fibroids?

Could be fibroids: Fibroids are the most common cause of heavy periods. The pain you describe could also be due to fibroids. When large they can press on pelvic nerves to cause pain in the pelvis, hips, buttocks, thighs, and down the legs. Talk to your doctor. While many places would obtain a pelvic ultrasound, pelvic MRI would actually be better. It delineates the fibroids to see if they correlate with your pain. ...Read more

Operated fungus ball in left maxillary sinus. Now, postnasal discharge(~ right side) in stomach and left lung.Big spleen. Smelly urine. What could be?

See doctor: Fungal ball in the sinus is not expected to cause urinary , abdominal, or urinary symptoms . If this affects your lung, then one needs to rule out the presence of fungal ball in the lung also. With the large spleen, I suspect that you are having a systemic disease and this requires tests and examination to clarify. By the way, the odor of urine is not usually diagnostic of anything . ...Read more
