swollen stomach

Hi, i,m really hoping someone can help me . i semm to have a lopsided stomach ,that is the left side of my abdomen stick out more than the right side,. i noticed this ayear or so ago and i dont think it has got worse . its like if i place my hands either side of my belly button the left hand will look higher up ,if that makes sense. i am worried that i may have an enlarged spleen, due to something like lymphoma or leukemia. i do get very paranoid about these things . i dont know if it is a swelling or just fat ,i am quite a bit overweight. it does not feel hard ,it just feel s like fat , but why would i have more fat on one side. if it was my spleen would it feel hard. any help appreciated thanks julie.

Re: swollen stomach

This definitely isn't Leukemia related. As for a swollen spleen you would be experiencing pain and tenderness upon compression of the spleen. Because you mentioned your overweight and that your swollen tummy is fat then it may simply be this. But if your worried see your doctor, especially if your tummy is swollen.

Re: swollen stomach

I would see your regular doctor and get a CAT scan of your abdomen. He can also send you to a gastroenterologist (digestive disease doctor). Good luck!
