What does it mean when you feel a pulse in your stomach?

See a doctor ASAP: A main artery, the aorta, runs from the heart down to the abdomen, called the abdominal aorta. If the walls of the vessel weaken and the artery bulges out like a big balloon, you may feel a mass in your stomach region and feel a pulsation.

Maybe: A very slender person will likely be able to feel their own aorta. Most people should not be able to do that. If you have any concerns or if you have family history of aneurysm disease then you should have an ultrasound. If you are a male smoker with a family history of AAA then you should definitely have an ultrasound. ...Read more

NO..: Noticing your pulse in the pit of your stomach is normal. Aortic aneurysm would be hardly likely at age 21, the risk increases with age, particularly a risk for male smokers over the age of 55. There is also a genetic component. First degree relatives and siblings of a patient with AA have a significantly increased risk of having the development of an AA. ...Read more
