Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My 58 years old mom suddenly gets severe lower abdominal pain on the right side, and at the same time, she feels a lump below her stomach and above the thighs. She used to feel like something is being pulled inside in one direction. She gets relief from this stomach pain once she vomits, and then the lump below the stomach also disappears. The lump is a tubular structure about 1 to 2 inches diameter. Also, the lump is painful when touched and it is not movable. If she does not take rest immediately, she will have severe pain up to two days. Sometimes before the onset of stomach pain, she has dysentery. All this is going on from the past 1 to 1.5 years. During the abdominal pain, she cannot even urinate, and even if she urinates, it comes out in drops. Can you please let us know the possible reason, treatment, and diet measures if any? Thanks.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

She basically needs a physical examination to know from where the lump is originating. Get an ultrasound of the entire abdomen to know the exact cause. This could either be most probably a hernia or a cyst. So, get an ultrasound and follow-up with the report.
