Consider Colon Spasm: Organs associated with left side of body beneath anterior rib cage are colon and spleen. A "knot" could be somatic (muscle) dysfunction related to visceral (organ) disturbance. If persistent, get abdominal x-ray, us, and/or ct scan. If intermittent, consider colon pain due to gas or spasm. In this case, use high dose of good quality acidophilus, along with bulk laxative (psyllim). Take separately. ...Read more

Should I be worried I've had a pain in my left side of the back of my rib cage at the bottom. I've had this pain for4 days.

Pain for 4 days: It depends if the pain is getting better or not. If it is getting better, then you should not be worried. If it is not getting better, then it becomes a concern. See if it is better or gone in the next couple of days. If it is not better or worsens, then I would recommend that you get it evaluated. ...Read more

At the bottom of my left rob cage, i can feel like a soft movable ball attached to it (where it almost meets right rib cage) is this normal or what?

Ball: It sounds like you may have a fatty tumor called lipoma, which is benign in nature. It's my guess, of course, so checking with a local doc is advisable if you're concerned or if it bothers you. ...Read more

Now and again I get a pain that's under my left rib and sometimes goes round to my back its at the bottom of my rib cage , it's mainly wen I'm sitting?

See answer: Pain under the left rib that radiates around to the back when sitting could be due to a number of causes. More often than not it's musculoskeletal in origin or a pinched nerve. Pain that has been intermittent for over a year, without getting worse, is less likely to be due to a serious cause. However if the pain concerns you, trust your intuition and see your physician for a proper diagnosis. ...Read more

I've been coughing too much that my left side of the body near the bottom of the rib cage hurts. Is this something of a concern?

Not usually: Pain in that location after coughing is usually caused by a strain of the muscles and ligaments used to generate a forceful expiration - i.e. A cough or sneeze. It will usually resolve in a few days with anti-inflammatory medications. If the pain should become unbearable or be accompanied by fever, bloody sputum, or significant shortness of breath you should be checked by a doctor. ...Read more
