In brief: Upper abdomen pain
Anatomically, the upper abdomen includes: spleen, pancreas, stomach, descending duodenum, mid colon & flexures, associated vessels & aorta, liver, gallbladder, biliary tree.
Don't forget the diaphragm, heart, & lower chest are pretty close by. Hernias, abdominal musculature, ribs, & skin can all contribute as well to upper abdominal pain. An exam is appropriate for clarity of diagnosis & treatment.
