The stomach, colon, and spleen are probably the 3 closest organs to the area you are describing. The liver has a left lobe near here. Lastly, the small intestine can be found pretty close to this area, as well.

What organ is under the bottom edge of the rib cage on the left side of the body? Pain from a knot under the bottom edge of the rib cage on the left side of my body. Once the knot goes away so does the pain. Getting worse. I am also a chronic pain patient

Consider Colon Spasm

Open-uri20121230-10087-1sxbk0k
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.

Which organ causes pain below left rib cage?

Lots of stuff there

Open-uri20120910-25886-ba7t8c
On the left side are the stomach, spleen, diaphragm (muscle for breathing), ribs, a part of the colon (large intestine), the tail end of the pancreas, etc... Pain can be from the ribs and their cartilage, a swollen spleen, stomach acidity/gastritis/reflux, muscle strains in the abdominal muscles or diaphragm, excess stool or gas in the colon, pancreatitis, a cancerous tumor, etc....

I'm hurting in the upper left below rib cage.. I'm had a EUS and a enscope what could this be what organ is there?

The stomach, colon, and spleen are probably the 3 closest organs to the area you are describing. The liver has a left lobe near here. The tail of the pancreas is near this region, as well. Lastly, the small intestine can be found pretty close to this area, as well. Since you had an EUS (endoscopic ultrasound), you must have seen a GI specialist-ask him/her what they believe is causing your pain.
