Dr. Robert Rahimi answered:

Stomach pain 2 inches below right rib cage and 2 inches to the right of my belly button. I also have bloating and gas. There are two hard lumps underneath the skin which are painful.

Gallbladder or ulcer

Without knowing more, it is difficult to say what the cause is, however it can be related to your gallbladder (gallstones) or stomach (ulcer disease) especially if you are taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS like Motrin or Ibuprofen). You should contact your PCP to gather more information and possibly run some tests like an ultrasound. If you have fever/severe pain, go to ER.

UTI? STD/STI?

Vulva
Urinary tract infections, whether bladder or kidney, are typically associated w/painful, frequent & urgent urination, often accompanied by abdominal (belly) pain below belly button and above pelvic bone. Sexually transmitted diseases/infections can also cause similar sensations. Best to go see your doc for an evaluation & treatment.

Dr. Camil N. Sader answered:

I have severe stomach pain near my belly button. Will this go away or should I get it check out?

Umbilical Pain

Abdominal_pain
Abdominal pain and the associated possibilities of diagnoses are endless. It is important to talk to a doctor to obtain a detailed history, a thorough exam, and tests that can confirm or rule out what we suspect you may have. Without this, we can only take an educated guess based on what's common. You may have an umbilical hernia, early appendicitis, a partial bowel obstruction. See your doc ASAP

10 yr old Child has stomach pain - said it aches - from belly button upward not sure what to give him

There

There are many illnesses - some rare, some common - that can cause pain in this area for a child such as: - Gastresophageal reflux disease - Gastroenteritis (stomach flu) - Gastritis - Peptic ulcer disease - Pancreatitis - Gallbladder disease - Constipation - Appendicitis - Functional abdominal pain And those are just a few of the things that could be causing it! Without knowing more information and being able to examine your child, it's hard for me to be able to tell what's going on and how to direct you to treat him. The safest thing to do is to call his doctor. They may want to examine him or ask you a series of questions in order to figure out how serious his stomach pain is and what to do next.
