Not sure.: Pain in abdomen that is progressive and constant probably needs evaluation. This is in the location of your appendix and could represent a subacute presentation. This could also be shingles or maybe even a hernia or ovarian issue. Would be reasonable to see your doc. ...Read more

Slight pain below belly button, in upper right stomach and slightly to the right of the belly button. Is it a cyst or is it appendicitis?

Slight pain below belly button, in upper right stomach and slightly to the right of the belly button. Is it a cyst or is it appendicitis?

Umbilical Hernia: It is unlikely to be a cyst or appendicitis. appendicitis not only causes pain but fever, loss of appetite, nausea, etc.... it also will worsen in a short time. cysts tend to be short lived and resolve on their own unless very large.

Lower abdomen pain below belly button trailing right through intestinal. 7 hours radiates from discomfort to high. Nausea and 101 fever?

Lower abdomen pain below belly button trailing right through intestinal.  7 hours radiates from discomfort to high. Nausea and 101 fever?

Appendicitis: If you have your appendix, you may not by tomorrow morning. This description sounds very suspicious for acute appendicitis. If you already have fever as you report, you may be close to rupture if not already. You need to get yourself to an emergency room tonight. I'd prefer someone drive you or call ambulance. Don't wait any longer - go now! ...Read more
