Re: Bubble under left side/center of rib cage
I would definitely see your doc regarding this,i mean it just shouldn't be there ya know?if nothing else,he can send you for an ultrasound on it to try and determine what it actually is.this really sounds like some sort of fluid filled cyst to me.the cause,well thats kind of where your doc comes into the picture.i am just wondering about the "nausea" connection??perhaps when you push on it you are stimulating a nerve to the stomach or something?considering the location of it,this could be very possible.but at any rate,you DO need this evaluated by your doc.this could just take a little bit of needle aspiration and it will be gone,who knows.but you DO need to find out for sure just what the heck this is and more importantly,what caused it to actually form.there could possibly be other cysts there as well but you just cannot actually palpate them as they are more under the skin than this one.this is why you need, at the very least,an ultrasound,this would most definitely show if there are any other cysts there as well as this one that you can actually feel.but you need to see your doc soon to get the ball rolling for an answer.
i wish you luck and am hoping its nothing serious.people can get cysts just about anywhere for many many possible reasons,most are not a really serious type of issue,and once they are "popped' or just aspirated,they are gone forever.hopefully this will be the case with you.please let us know what you find out.**
