Hello Bagus Indra, thank you for asking about HealthReplies.com.
Edema or swelling is a condition where there is a buildup of fluid in the body's tissues. This edema can only occur in some parts of the body such as feet, hands, face, and stomach, but can also occur in the whole body.
Edema that occurs in the abdomen, as in other parts of the body, this occurs because of the accumulation of fluid in the stomach which is increasingly increasing. This fluid buildup can occur due to damage to certain organs such as:
Liver damage (eg hardening of the liver (liver cirrhosis) and liver cancer)
Kidney damage (eg chronic kidney failure, nephrotic syndrome, etc.)
Damage to the heart (heart failure)
Lack of protein energy (edema)
Tumors in the pelvic cavity
Obstructions in the veins (veins) or lymph vessels
The main symptom of stomach edema itself is an enlargement of the stomach accompanied by a feeling of fullness in the stomach and these symptoms are not caused by excessive food consumption. These symptoms can also be accompanied by other symptoms that vary, depending on the main cause of the edema. Therefore, if you feel you are experiencing the main symptoms of abdominal edema, it is advisable to check with your doctor for further evaluation of your complaint. After it is known whether you are experiencing this condition or not, the new doctor will determine what further actions should be taken to you.
I hope this helps.
