Hemangioma Gallstone: The hemangioma does not cause symptoms and needs no further evaluation or treatment. You can forget about it unless you ever need a liver biopsy for an unrelated issue or have abdominal trauma (because it could bleed if injured). The gallstones may be causing your symptoms and a hida scan might be useful to see if the stones are blocking the opening in the gallbladder that lets them out.
It's possible: Having an enlarged abdomen can shift your weight in such a way that it creates strain on your back. However, there are medical conditions that enlarged the abdomen that can cause pain as well. To be on the safe side, you should have it checked out by your doctor.
See a doctor ASAP: This should not be a presentation for online consult. Your doctor needs to ask specific questions, look at your abdomen and physically check for clues. You will likely need blood tests and x-rays for a diagnosis and treatment planning.See 1 more doctor answer
Intestines uterus: As we age there is less muscle and our intestines and other organs can seem to protrude. Also, the elderly can sometimes appear to be swollen due to constipation and women can have a prominent lower abdomen due to a large uterus or fibroids. Other reasons include hernias of the belly button or from a previous incision on the belly.
Fatty food/gallstone: Intermittent swelling of your abdomen may be related to fatty foods and gallstones. Dinner is usually the highest fat meal. Fat triggers gallbladder to squeeze, empty its load of digestive bile into your GI tract. If you have gallstones, dietary fat triggers an abnormal system and bloating/swelling occur. Ultrasound can be diagnostic. Others causes: constipation, gastric bloat, mass.
Large abdomen: An enlarging abdomen over what is normal for you, can develop over a period of hours to weeks. This excludes obesity, common causes are gas in the intestine, fluid in the abdomen, pregnancy, and rarely cancer. A CAT scan or ultrasound will show what is going on. Would be helpful to know if there are other symptoms, such as pain, constipation, and liver problems.
Doctor: I recommend that you see a doctor. Could be a simple problem as constipation but can be a serious problem.
