View Full Version : Palpable Mass in left iliac fossa ADVICE PLEASE

10-02-2011, 08:01 PM
Hi all I've always had problems with IBS for many years and during a recent scan on my tummy a mass was found on the left hand side,its literally pushing against my hip bone and is painful,even when I've been to the toilet.
The doctor said he was going to look at the scan pictures again with a colleague and get my back in if needs be,I just don't know what it is or if its dangerous,anyone else had this or know anything about it please?
I also have blood and mucus (sorry)when I go to the toilet,I'm worried if I'm totally honest and I don't understand these technically terms.
I've also just had a fibroid found in the womb which was no surprise as i had a hydatidiform molar pregnancy years ago which had a huge tumour,although it was not cancerous I was told that I would be at a greater risk of stomach cancer late on in life than someone whom had not experienced this:
Any help would be appreciated as always
Take care all
