Medicine For Lump In Stomach?
I want to ask, my brother has a rather large lump under his stomach, the lump goes up to the top of the vagina, my brother feels back pain and the lump can be big and hard but sometimes it can be small and a bit soft. What are the symptoms?rnThank you
Hi Karina. The condition that your brother is experiencing can be caused by:
1. Inguinal hernia where there is weakness of the abdominal muscles so that the contents of the abdominal cavity can slip in, especially when there is pressure on the stomach such as straining, stones, lifting heavy weights
2. Cysts (fluid-filled sacs) in the form of lipomas, atheroma
3. Malignancy, especially in the intestine
4. cystocele or protrusion of the bladder due to weakness of the supporting tissues of the bladder and vaginal area
Talk to your doctor about your relative's condition to get further treatment. Physical examination can help where other tests such as ultrasound, blood, CT scan can help if needed. Specific treatment depends on the underlying cause. Hopefully helpful, and thank you. Regards, Dr Alyssa
