Painful Lump On Upper Left Abdomen
CT Scan benefit outweigh the risk? I'm 23 with 3 CT scans already. Doctors concerned about chronic upper left abdomen pain radiating to back.
Depends: It depends on what your dr is concerned about. CT scans do provide significant radiation exposure. Some causes of left upper abdominal pain can e assessed by ultrasound or endoscopy, depending on your other symptoms and risks. If however, your doctor can provide good reason why CT scan is necessary, then it is probably worth doing. You can always seek a second opinion.

Yesterday, I noticed a slight lump/bulge on my upper left abdomen below my rib cage after dinner. It is not painful. Is this anything to worry about?
Not yet.: I wouldn't worry too much just yet. It could be a harmless cyst or deposit of fat called a lipoma. It's something your doc should check out - not urgently, though. If it's not painful and you have no other symptoms, it could be done within 1-2 weeks.
Some thoughts...: Any new painful lump should be checked out by your doctor soon. It's really hard to say without a thorough exam or more history. Some thoughts include a sebaceous cyst, a lipoma, a blood collection from trauma, or the beginning of an abscess formation. Good luck and be sure to get it checked out!

I have occasional pain in my upper left abdomen, gallbladder is removed, soft lump on arch of right foot. I was told after gallbladder was removed I had a bit of fatty build up. But I didn't need to change my diet. Could this be a liver issue?
Gastroenterologist: I recommend an evaluation by a gastroenterologist. Causes of left upper abdominal discomfort include disorders of spleen, stomach, pancreas, common bile duct or portions of the colon which takes a 90 degree turn there and can cause gas entrapment. I don't consider the liver or complications of gall bladder surgery to be a cause of your discomfort.
Abscess: If it is on or in the subcutaneous tissue, it may be an abscess. Get seen.

Could be a hernia: The first thing that comes to mind with the above description is an incarcerated hernia, although there could be other causes as well. An incarcerated hernia is potentially, but not always a surgical emergency. It would require a hands-on examination by a surgeon to make that determination. Sometimes it requires immediate operation to prevent or treat gangrenous bowel.
