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.

Any advice? I have noticed that my left rib cage, bottom right of it sticks out more than my right rib cage. So is this normal?

Yes and no: Not perfectly " normal" but not unusual. A fairly high percentage of people will have what is known as an symmetric trunk rotation which can be associated with an symmetric appearance to their trunk/ribs, it can sometimes be associated with scoliosis as well. Don't hesitate to mention to your primary care doctor next time you are seen.

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?

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.

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.

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?

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.

I have swelling on left side of the bottom of rib cage when I touch it not the same as right side no major pain but discomfort and sometimes feel slig?

Trauma? Shingles: Dear YKarim, have you hit the area? If not, when reading this, I got concerned about Shingles (Herpes zoster) in which case, early antivirals will help. Monitor if you develop redness or bumps in the skin. Costochondritis is another though. A virtual or personal consult might help to clarify the reason. Good luck.

LUQ anatomy: Anatomically, the left upper quadrant (luq) of abdomen includes: spleen, pancreatic tail, stomach, descending duodenum, splenic flexure of the colon, associated vessels. Don't forget the diaphragm, heart, and lower chest are pretty close by. The abdominal musculature, ribs, and skin can all contribute as well to localizing luq pain.

I been having pain on my left side of my rib cage, should I worry since I had it all day yesterday, and also right on the bottom of my spine it aches?

Be ready: If you have fever, shortness of breath or weak and lightheaded, you should be evaluated today. If you feel ok other than the pain, and symptoms are not worsening, you could wait and see if it persists for a couple of days, especially if you can identify a well-defined area of tenderness in the chest wall. That would tell you it's probably a musculoskeletal problem. Low back pain may be unrelated.
