Common Questions and Answers about Abscess near liver


Avatar n tn I was pissed! The ER doctor first stuck a huge, long needle into my thigh near the abscess, which went about half way into my leg. This was a VERY painful procedure and it barely took away the pain (honesty I felt EVERYTHING!) Once my leg was "supposedly" numb, he then proceded to to slice open the wound "so it could drain more.
Avatar f tn Hi, I have what I am 99% sure is a Bartholin Cyst or abscess since it is painful, tender & swollen. I am a medical technician who spent 2 years treating regular abscess' so I kind of know what I am in for but have never dealt with the bartholin gland type. I am worried because I know that it is very difficult to anesthetize and abscess locally. I am hoping I am not too late for antibiotic/ sitz bath therapy.

Avatar n tn Ok, so I've been putting up with on again, off again itching for months on my labia, near my vaginal opening. Never "diagnosed" with HPV but I did get rid of a suspected wart this past year. Can you have a bacterial infection without discharge? It drives me CRAZY sometimes, the only thing that calms it is gold bond ointment, which is minty and refreshing but I'd like no itch. No "rash" that I can see, unless I give in and scratch.
Avatar n tn 5cm is ill defined and they are not sure what it may be, suggesting early fatty infiltration or abscess. I am completely asymptomatic and blood tests are all normal. Do liver specialists in the U.S. recommend resection in cases where diagnosis is not clear? My concern with the first two are that they are possibly adenomas, since it seems to be difficult to diagnose clearly, and this could be dangerous.
Avatar n tn Hi, How are you? One of the complications of dental abscess is brain abscess. Brain abscess can occur due to fungal or bacterial infections which can easily infect the brain through blood. This brain infection generally presents as headache, vomiting, drowsiness and confusion and sometimes seizures. It is possible that the infection in the brain was the result of dental abscess. A blood culture will help in detecting the type of infection and consequent antibiotic therapy.
900045 tn?1241931848 im 17 yrs old and have been having a pain in my right side for just over 2 weeks now. it started down near my hip but has now moved up near my liver. it has nausiated me, gave me sever head aches, and i almost passed out. i dont have a fever tho. i had a baby 7 weeks ago so idk if it has something to do with that. i told my ob at my 6 week check up and she said it could be an egg being released. to me that sounds pretty dumb. idk if this is something serious, if i should go to the ER or not.
Avatar m tn Further testing is being done now on my liver and kidney functioning (CMP, etc), as I have been a weekend binge drinker for 8 or so years (college and following, 1 night per week). To help with diagnosis, I have an abscess that is located near my anus that was recently diagnosed as a cyst by a dermatologist. He injected it with cortisone right about the same time my stomach began burning…probably releasing the abscess toxins in to my blood stream.
Avatar n tn The main symptom of appendicitis is belly pain. Many people feel the first pain near the belly button. Then it moves to the lower right side of the belly. But the pain can be in different parts of your belly or even on your side or back. The pain may get worse if you move, walk, or cough. You may also have a fever or feel sick to your stomach. Let us know how he makes out okay?
Avatar f tn Trace free fluid in cul-de-sac, non-specific etiology. Liver normal in size. Few small well-circumscribed low density lesions scattered throughout liver, largest measures 7.5 mm in right lobe. Impression: Few subcentimeter hepatic lesions, nonspecific etiology, likely benign if there is no known history of primary malignancy. Significance to be determined clinically.
Avatar f tn Fungal infection usually responds to anti-fungal medications. Anal abscess is an infected cavity filled with pus found near the anus or rectum. Pus drains out if the skin over the abscess breaks. An abscess usually results from an acute infection of a small gland just inside the anus. An anal fistula, on the other hand, usually results from a previous abscess.It is a small tunnel connecting the anal gland from which the abscess arose to the skin outside the anus.
Avatar n tn it usually consists of you lying on your back and the doc pressing down (not real hard) on different places on your abdomen near the edge of your rib cage on both sides and sometimes a bit lower (but not in the pelvic area). s/he's checking for enlargement of your liver and spleen. s/he is also feeling for any obvious masses or tender areas. s/he will also use a stethescope on your abdomen to listen for bowel sounds. for a rectal exam, you'll be lying on your side with a drape over you.
Avatar f tn A MRI of the cervical spine may be required for confirmed diagnosis. Another possibility is a subdiaphragmatic abscess on your right side due to a liver problem causing pain on your right shoulder & upper chest, which radiates to your arms. GErd is another possibility. Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do discuss these possibilities with your treating doctor. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn Pseudomonas located in a deep liver abscess. Ultrasound couldn't find it, but blood cultures did after 5-1/2 days. Found out Pseudomonas isn't responsive to Augmentin or Cefdinir. Doc added Cipro to the rotating, prophylactic doses of antibiotics. All is well again, at least until the antibiotics stop working.
Avatar n tn I cough pretty constantly and there are times when I go into my coughing attacks (although nowhere near as bad as when I had the group F) to the point of gagging. As you have probably found, there is really nothing online about group F. If you have any more questions let me know, I might be able to help considering I went through it and spent nights awake from coughing.
Avatar f tn An abdominal mass can be a sign of an abscess, a problem with a blood vessel (such as an aneurysm), an enlarged organ (such as the liver, spleen, or kidney), a tumor, or an accumulation of feces. Many of these do not fit your description, but some do. - Abdominal aortic aneurysm can cause a pulsating mass around the navel.
2030686 tn?1351692148 I have really bad teeth some are so broken that there's less than half a tooth left. Right now I have an abscess and I'm gonna go get some antibiotics, but I'm wondering if I should find a way to get them pulled before tx. If I get them all pulled I have nothing left to eat with so I would have to get something to replace them. I can't afford to do any of this. We have some money saved in case my husband has to take too many days off work for my tx but I really think we're gonna need it.
Avatar f tn In October 2013 my GYN medroxyprogesterone acetate to restart my cycle which restarted irregularly but was less heavy than previously and has since evened out to be near regular again. October 2013 another leg/groin abscess appeared and was drained and packed by a surgeon; again I took antibiotics to help with the infection. It healed well within a couple of weeks. April 2014 I was diagnosed with anemia and have had two doses of feraheme IV therapy.
Avatar n tn during the car ride home i experienced an extreme pain in the left side of my head all at once during swalling near the top of the head. I pad it very litttle mind and chalked it up to one of those random pains that could happen at anytime. About a day after thast i started experiencing minor headaches in that part of my head on a daily basis sometimes lasting 2-5 hours. the pain is dull but constant.most frequentyl occuring at night but during the day as well.
Avatar n tn Ultrasound showed borderline enlarged spleen and liver. As well as some mild bowel wall thickening. I was prescribed cipro and flagyl for one week. My symptoms seemed to get better at the end of the round of antibiotics. However within a few days I was feeling abdominal pain again, and feeling very fatigue, on and off headaches and warm flushes in my face. By this time I had been referred to a GI specialist. He had me in for a CT Scan.
Avatar n tn Right upper abdominal pain can be due to cholecystitis (inflammation of gall bladder), stones in gall bladder, abscess under the diaphragm, liver problems or due to duodenal ulcer. If this is in the chest area, it can also be due to costochondritis (inflammation of the joint between rib and sternum. The inflammation around the joint area gives sharp pain on taking a breath. This can also cause tenderness on pressing the area which pains.
Avatar n tn If the lump came up really quickly, it is possible it might be an abscess (?) Even more likely if it is very sensitive or painful, or looks inflamed. If it's a very soft, round lump, it might be a lipoma, which is benign, but if it grows too big, and affects the nerves or muscle-function, may need to be taken off, (a lipoma is made of fatty tissue) If it is firm, but smooth and very rounded, there is a possiblity it could be a fluid-filled cyst. That could be drained.
Avatar n tn I still have some modest pain around the incision, but I am concerned about the persistent, dull pain near the edge of my ribs, above the appendix at around the area where he would have found the abscess. I do not have a fever, and blood and urine tests 5 days ago were normal. Ultrasounds have revealed that I have one gallstone (6mm) in an apparently normal gallbladder, and a small (3mm) kidneystone, but I have never had the classic symptoms of either.
Avatar f tn The symptom first showed up as a mass in the middle of August. In the beginning it was treated as a cyst, then as an abscess from infection, then eventually was finalized as GM because culture showed no infection and biospies were no cancer cells. I had 4 operations so far. The doctor left the wound open so I am still waiting for the wound to close. I suggest you see experienced breast specialist for this disease.
1462810 tn?1327364049 just try it- a slice of raw garlic wrapped in a bit of gauze placed between the lip and gum over a tooth abscess, within 45 minutes the pain will be gone, with repeated application so will the infection.

Avatar n tn That equates to a pack a day for 50 years, two packs a day for 25 years, etc. His turned out to be a lung abscess. He had no symptoms, just a spot on an xray. Back then there were no CT or MRI scans available. They ended up doing a needle biopsy through his chest wall. He recently had a scare where, after he had a pretty nasty cold, he was coughing up blood. Not a lot, just some bloody mucus when he really coughed hard. He and I were both worried, of course.
Avatar m tn why is it my doctor only gave me nasonex and didn't tell me about neilmed?
Avatar f tn Anything that irritates the under surface of the diaphragm can cause frequent burping, like liver abscess, hepatitis or peritonitis. Blood tests will help detect infections, besides stool examination which will reveal fat malabsorption. Colonoscopy and flexible sigmoidoscopy are procedures which are used to study the whole colon for infections and inflammations. Bacterial overgrowth is tested with a breath test. Please discuss these issues with your doctor when you happen to meet him. Regards.
