Abdominal pain

Abdominal pain is pain that you feel anywhere between your chest and groin. This is often referred to as the stomach region or belly.

Abdominal pain can range from mild to severe: be dull or sharp; There are many causes of abdominal pain.

There are many organs in the abdomen. Pain in the abdomen can originate from any one of them, including:

Organs related to digestion - the stomach, the end of the esophagus, the small and large intestines, the liver, the gallbladder, and the pancreas.

The aorta - a large blood vessel that runs straight down the inside of the abdomen.
The appendix - an organ in the lower right abdomen that no longer serves much function.
The kidneys - two bean shaped organs that lie deep within the abdominal cavity.
However, the pain may originate from somewhere else - like your chest or pelvic region. You may also have a generalized infection affecting many parts of your body, like the flu or strep throat.

The intensity of the pain does not always reflect the seriousness of the condition causing the pain. Severe abdominal pain can be from mild conditions, such as gas or the cramping of viral gastroenteritis. On the other hand, relatively mild pain or no pain may be present with life-threatening conditions, such as cancer of the colon or early appendicitis.
