Left side of body (slightly behind & under rib cage- both in front and behind) has sharp pain while I am sitting, not moving.  Should i see a doctor?

Yes: The location of the pain causes me a bit of concern - have you had any trauma to the area in the last several weeks? The spleen is in that general area, and it can swell with trauma. Sometimes, this happens over an extended period of time. While there are other things to cause this pain, i would strongly advise getting it checked out! ...Read more

I have lipomas on left side of body. One big one in left calf. And one in left rib area. tells me don't worry. But how does he know not liposarcoma?

Get it removed : While it is rare for lipomas to turn into liposarcoma, a large lipoma especially on the arms or legs should be removed completely as those locations have a higher risk. Larger lipomas have a higher risk. Sometimes an MRI before surgery can give clues as to the possibility of finding a sarcoma. ...Read more

Be seen: With your history of alcohol abuse your pain could be due to pancreatitis. Pancreatitis is an inflammation of the pancreas and can cause the symptoms you describe. It also cause nausea and vomiting. Another cause of your pain could be gastritis or peptic ulcer. I suggest being seen for a diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

What organ is under the bottom edge of the rib cage on the left side of the body? Pain from a knot under the bottom edge of the rib cage on the left side of my body. Once the knot goes away so does the pain. Getting worse. I am also a chronic pain patient

What organ is under the bottom edge of the rib cage on the left side of the body? Pain from a knot under the bottom edge of the rib cage on the left side of my body. Once the knot goes away so does the pain. Getting worse. I am also a chronic pain patient

Consider Colon Spasm: Organs associated with left side of body beneath anterior rib cage are colon and spleen. A "knot" could be somatic (muscle) dysfunction related to visceral (organ) disturbance. If persistent, get abdominal x-ray, us, and/or ct scan. If intermittent, consider colon pain due to gas or spasm. In this case, use high dose of good quality acidophilus, along with bulk laxative (psyllim). Take separately. ...Read more

Hi doctor I've s swelling on left hand side of my body just under rib cage which is sore all over that area ?

See your doctor!: If you are referring to the spleen area, it's important that you get evaluated by your PCP so they can do a thorough abdominal examination, and get more medical, social, travel, trauma, sexual history from you to determine what is swelling and why it's swelling.This may involve lab testing& imaging too. So, don't delay. If it's still painful over this area, it won't get better faster w/o med care. ...Read more
