Could a hiatal hernia cause back pain just to the right of the spine about 1 inch below the shoulder blade?
Yes: Yes it could. I would have this evaluated as most hiatal hernias do not cause pain unless there is some other problem.

See a gastroenterologist or a surgeon. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

It would not cause swelling near the xiphoid process. Maybe excess gas in the stomach or colon could cause that. It doesn't sound specific to any one diagnosis. Hope this helps! ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
