In brief: Left lower quad pain

The llq (left lower part of our abdomen & pelvis) contains the sigmoid and left colon, left ovary, left kidney, some of the small intestines, spaces in between, & the surrounding skin, muscles.
Aside from gynecologic & urologic issues, pain in the llq may result from hernia, sensitive and/or distended colon, inflammation (like diverticulitis or colitis), ischemic disease, infection. Get checked.
