You need to get to a teaching hospital that performs liver transplants. They are the only ones that can tell the difference between a benign growth and liver cancer. They are also the only place you can treat liver cancer. Liver cancer is a very serious, life-threatening cancer. It should be detected as early as possible, when it is small, to have the best prognosis. Stomach/abdomen swelling is called "ascites" it could be a complication of cirrhosis of the liver.
I have an appointment with my liver specialist July 1 of this year. I have noticed that my stomach will just not flatten out like it always used to, even though my weight has stayed the same. This is true even lying down. I'm 53, 1b, 3-time nonresponder, Stage 3, Grade 2 as of July '05 biopsy. Is this just gravity and aging or is it the HepC? I feel good, just tired sometimes. Of course I'll ask my doc, but you guys are always so helpful. Thanks.
It does go away for about two or three weeks but then comes back..
Ascites is usually caused by impaired circulation to/from the liver, which is in turn caused by liver disease that physically alters the organ (cirrhosis, cancer, etc.) or an obstructing growth such as cancer of the abdoinal organs. So if you have a SUDDEN bloat like that, put ascites way down on your list of worries and rest assured anything but the mildest degree would almost certainly be discovered on the first exam, no matter what the underlying cause.
Vague but persistent gastrointestinal complaints such as gas, nausea, indigestion. Frequency and/or urgency of urination. Any unexplained change in bowel habits. Abnormal postmenopausal bleeding. Weight gain or loss. Abdominal swelling and/or pain; bloating and/or a feeling of fullness. Pain during intercourse. If vague symptoms persist longer than 4-6 weeks, insist on a thorough rectovaginal examination.
Even morphine did not help me until I was taken to hospital. Last three days I have had similar pain in my ribs, stomach and spine but without the swelling in my stomach. Am wondering if this is side effects from the chemo or something more sinister.
Now he has shortness of breath, swelling in one foot, and is pale and sometimes his color is purpleish. His stomach is distended also. He blows through his mouth when walking and I hear a "whistling" quite often when he is just sitting. I think he may have COPD although he does not have a cough? Or is this maybe from the nodule and is it signs of lung cancer? He wont go back to the doctor and says if it gets too bad he will. Not sure what to do.
upper abdominal discomfort may also be related to the stomach. You can get a breath test done at a stomach diagnostic centre to see if you have the bacteria helicobacter that causes gastritus and stomach ulcers. I was recently treated for helicobacter (a cocktail of antibiotics used in combination with nexium or PPI equivalent) and my bowel problems (leafy) settled months after my gastitus healed.
The doc said he wasnt sure what he was going to do until he got in there and looked at the ovaries, he would do his very best not to have to do a colostomy. Im and petrified !! My question is can endometriosis be the cause of the thin bowl movements and bloating/gas. Or am I looking at possibly ovarian cancer etc. I am not in a lot of pain.

Hi everyone. First time user. I am worried sick about ovarian cancer. About 3 months ago I got a vaginal infection of some sort and ignored it- I could feel a little cyst in the vagina and had cloudy urine. After 3 mos, I began to have a sudden urge to pee right away and could hardly hold it in. My lower back was an irritable ache. (I should say that I have been going to a physio therapist and my pelvis is out of line due to breaking a leg 3 mos ago).
Im 19 years old and I have been told that I will need a series of 3 blood tests over a few months to determine if i have ovarian cancer.
