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

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.

What's on the mid part of the left side of your stomach?

Spleen and kidney

The organs to the left of your stomach are the L kidney and the spleen. Your intestines flop all over so, to be perfectly correct, we should them in as well,.

my wife is 9 months pregnant and she started developing sharp pains on the left side of her stomach. please what is the cause of this?

Time to call doc

If your wife is 9 months, and you're unsure about the cause, it's absolutely essential to let her doctor know about any new belly pains/cramping - even if they appear to be around the stomach and not related at all to the pregnancy. Besides contractions, there are also uterine infections which can cause abdominal pain which need to be treated sooner rather than later. Please call her doc!

if your having trouble eating and hurting on your upper left side of your stomach and the doc does a uperGI and finds nothing what could this be?

multiple possibiliti

Not sure what exactly you mean by "trouble eating" but a more detailed exam is an EGD (scope that is passed into the stomach while you are asleep) an this may find the cause. Also occasionally colon issues can cause pain in the left upper quadrant as well and a colonoscopy may be suggested. A spleen issue may be the culprit and an Abdomen ultrasound may be helpful in finding out what's going on.

What organ is on the left side about five inches below the breast at the edge of the rib cage?

There are a few...

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.

Dr. Holly Maes answered:

My son is complaining of pain on his left side of stomach even when he moves what is the cause?

If severe, get help

There ae lots of things in your abdomen. On left side is colon, kidney, intestines, spleen, testicle. In some kids the appendix is over on the left side (right side more common), His guts could be twisted inside themselves. If he is in severe pain, made worse by movement, this may be an emergency, or something very simple like constipation. But severe abdominal pain always needs evaluation, NOW!

My son ; aged 5 yrs old, complained of pain on his left side of his waist ( stomach ). What is the problem & possible causes?

usually constipation

Right sided pain usually worry about gall bladder or appendicitis. On the left side the organs are colon, spleen, part of pancreas, part of stomach, and left kidney. Without associated fever or trauma, the most common cause is bowel gas and constipation. If persists, then should consult pediatrician for physical examination and possibly imaging.
