Bump In The Solar Plexus?
Good morning, I am 23 years old. I want to ask if there is a lump in the pit of my stomach when it is pressed, it doesn’t hurt, but my stomach is enlarged and my menstruation is not smooth. Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The solar plexus (upper abdomen) is inhabited by various structures. The appearance of a bump in this area can indicate the following conditions:
Lumps derived from bone, for example due to xyphoid bone protrusions (easily visible in thin people) Lumps originating from the skin and its supporting structures, for example due to folliculitis, acne, warts, sebaceous cysts, lipomas, sarcomas Lumps that originate from internal organs, for example gastric cancer, duodenal cancer, ascites, hepatomegaly, splenomegaly, etc. Unfortunately, you do not show exactly what the characteristics of the lump are, including size, consistency, mobility, and so on. Therefore, it is difficult for you to know the possible relationship between enlargement of the abdomen and your menstrual irregularity with these lumps.
An enlarged abdomen can also be caused by dyspepsia (increased stomach acid), intra-abdominal tumors, ascites, obesity, body dysmorphic disorder, pregnancy, and so on. Meanwhile, menstruation that is not smooth can also arise due to stress, fatigue, obesity, side effects of birth control, ovarian cysts, thyroid gland abnormalities, and so on.
Our advice, you consult yourself directly to the doctor so you know what conditions actually underlie your complaints. Follow-up examinations, such as x-rays, ultrasound, biopsy, laboratory, etc. may also be done by a doctor if you feel necessary. In addition, the following steps are also appropriate for you to do:
No pressing or sorting lumps in the pit of the stomach Keep your personal hygiene, shower diligently and use clean, non-strict clothing Eat regularly, don't delay, reduce foods and drinks that contain a lot of gas Routine exercise 1 to 2 days Don't stress or excessive anxiety Don't carelessly take medicine without doctor's advice Hopefully it helps ..
