Probly, nothing seri: These are vague and very unimpressive symtoms. Quit worrying. If there is anything significant going on, the symptoms will progressively worsen...Otherwise they will slowly go away. You need to give it week or so to get a sense of direction.

Cyst or benign growt: This could be a sebaceous cyst, a fibroma, or a benign tumor like a lipoma; or if red and tender, an infected deep "pimple" or cyst (called a furuncle). It does not sound dangerous in any case, but have it evaluated.

My wife is diagnosed with distended gallbladder and having inflated, tight lower abdomen and sometimes having pain also especially in the evening.?

My wife is diagnosed with distended gallbladder and having inflated, tight lower abdomen and sometimes having pain also especially in the evening.?

Several reasons: Distension of gall bladder usually diagnosed by ultrasound. Distended gall bladder may mean abnormality, but often is related to how long patient fasted before the study. The longer the fast the more distended the gall bladder. Food ingestion causes gb to contract. If symptomatic hida study would determine gall bladder function. Physician has to correlate blood tests and imaging for proper diagnosis.

Male 23 lower left side abdomen numbness, tightness of chest and tender nipples?

Male 23 lower left side abdomen numbness, tightness of chest and tender nipples?

Chest tightness: Left sided chest symptoms are always worrisome, because they make physicians think of heart problems. However, if you are a 23-year-old male, this becomes much less likely. I would strongly suggest you be evaluated as soon as possible by your physician, an urgent care center, or emergency center.

Have dull pain in right testicle & dull pain or tightness in area from testicle to lower abdomen area. Have had this for roughly 2 wks and never had?

Have dull pain in right testicle & dull pain or tightness in area from testicle to lower abdomen area. Have had this for roughly 2 wks and never had?

Is R testicle harder: If right testicle feels rock hard relative to left one or is tender when you pal pâté it, you need to see a doctor. Could be anything from infection, inflammation, cancer, or just a cyst or muscle ache after working out (the latter wouldn't last 2 weeks, however). As this is persistent, you need to get a physical exam. If it already got better on its own and you are back to normal, you are ok

Need more info: In order to answer your question I need to know when this pain happens, when it started, how often it happens, how long it lasts, whether anything makes it better or worse, and if there are any other associated symptoms as well as more about your history. You might try a consult thru HealthTap Prime.

I'm having lower back pain. Abdomen feels tight and airy. Passing gas. Something serious?

I'm having lower back pain. Abdomen feels tight and airy. Passing gas. Something serious?

Feeling gassy...: Feeling full of "gas" may reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks). Sometimes its more complicated--a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, and pelvic pathology outside the gut.

Sex THEN drinking???: Wrong order! ;-) Just kidding. It's too soon to be pregnant, even if you were unprotected. If you miss your next expected period, get tested for pregnancy!

Exercise associated: Twitching is likelyan attempt to rid the muscle of lactic acidosis, and means it's time to give that muscle group a rest...At least 30 minutes, better tomorrow...

See a DO (osteopath): You might be feeling a scar tissue from the cs, or it may just be fascial restriction of the area. In any case, an osteopathic physician can evaluate this on physical exam, and complete osteopathic exam to let you know the findings. They can treat it, and let you know how long it will take to start feeling bette, which hopefully will be immediately or very soon.
