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.

I am a diabetic and my pancreas is hurting really bad I think that is what it is. It is on my left side mid way down under my breast. ?

suggest evaluation

pancratitis more typically atarts as abdominal pain that goes through to your back, what you are describing would start me looking at your heart and for pneumonia among other possibilities I think you would be best served to seek evaluation without hesitation

Dr. Mary B. Engrav answered:

What is pain under the left breast with back pain on the left and right side. lungs are clear short breaths.

This

This pain could be from a cardiac cause, such as heart pain. Cardiac pain is usually worse with activity, is more common in patients with cardiovascular risk factors such as high cholesterol, smoking, or hypertension. Lung causes such as pleurisy or blood clot are a possibility but then usually the pain is worse with deep breathing. Abdominal causes such as pancreatitis or gallstones could also cause upper abdominal/chest pain. If your pain has persisted, if you have nausea/vomiting, fever, or the symptoms stated above then please go to the ER.

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.

Costochondritis

This is a common condition where the insertion of the ribs into the breastbone or spine become inflamed and painful. It is frequently seen after an upper respiratory infection. It should improve with time. NSAIDs like Motrin work well for this kind of pain.

What is the cause and how can I fix it when I have pain in the left side of the rib cage under the breast?

dietary, gas, spleen

Kimberly, there are air pockets that can move if you touch your toes and move about, then lie on the side of the pain on the ground. Repeat this process if it helps a little... If you are constipated eat metamucil and yoghurt (organic fat free, plain). Drink a glass of water afterwards, wait and repeat the above. If you have family with sickle cell blood get yourself checked.

Dr. Paul Sucgang answered:

Im having chest pain on my left side under my breast and dizziness and sometimes numbness of my left arm.. What could this be?

Heart Condition

Chest pain on the left side with numbness in the left arm and dizziness could possiblys signal a medical emergency. At the worst, this could be an impending heart attack. At best, it could be angina which is still a heart condition that could lead to worse outcomes including death. My suggestion, visit your local ER if this continues to occur.

RESPOND ASAP PLEASE!! What causes unexpected bruises on your abdomen? It's on my left side under my breast area(lung)& its slightly painful. Worried

Take it easy

You sound panicked an I would urge you to take a deep breath. There is no way to diagnose what it is without a workup and physical. however if you are very concerned or are having other symptoms like pain or shortness of breath go to the ER.
