In brief: Jaundice

Abdominal discomfort associated with itching can be a sign of bile duct blockage in the liver. A simple lab test and/or ultrasound will help rule this out.
Does the patient have yellow skin or yellowness in the whites of their eyes?

In brief: Possible liver issue

Sometimes when there is a problem with the liver or gallbladder it can cause some upper abdominal discomfort and itching.
I would check with my doctor and have them run some liver function blood tests.
