The Rib On The Right Front Of The Protruding And Swollen?
2 months ago I suffered from gastric intestines, during that time there was something strange in my left front rib, suddenly it protruded in the middle, and now my true ribs are actually swollen like that, so when I lie down it hurts, why? yes it could be swollen, even though I never had a physical accident such as a fall or crash, oh yes I’m 23 years old, is it possible that bone disease, such as bone loss?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
There are complaints of pain in and protrusion of your ribs can be caused by various conditions. Here are some things that can be considered the cause of your current complaint:
or ribs that were experienced before. Injury can occur whether consciously or unconsciously.
The presence of disturbances in the organs around the ribs such as inflammation of the lining of the lungs known as pleurisy, but of course in general accompanied by additional complaints such as coughing or shortness of breath.
There is calcification or reinforcement in the damaged bone
Deformation of the sternum and ribs. The sternum is a vertically elongated bone which, in some individuals, undergoes a deformity that can be triggered by an injury or without an obvious cause. This condition is usually harmless as long as there is no respiratory distress.
The presence of other medical conditions. Infection or infection of the bones and muscles around the chest can be considered.
To ensure your condition, there is nothing wrong with consulting and direct examination by a doctor. Because a medical condition needs to be confirmed by direct examination. Whether or not additional examinations such as X-rays are needed will be adjusted to the results of the consultation and examination by the doctor later. You can see a general practitioner and need to be referred to an orthopedist specialist or not depending on the results of the consultation and examination later. Thus, treatment can be done according to your condition.
That's all I can say, hopefully it's useful.
