    Tenderness in certain spot on right side

    Ive had a spot that is really tender and gets sore if I eat on my right side just below my ribcage for about a year now. Could it be something liver related? it hurts a lot if I touch it or if I accidently bump into something in that particular spot.

    I don't get on here much anymore, but yes, it does sound liver related to me. I would notify your doctor and have tests performed. It could be something very serious or something very mild..such as gallstones. Either way, it is best to hurry and find out what is causing it so that you can start a treatment for it.

    I had a CT scan which showed nothing. I still have the tenderness and I get the runs frequently (dont know if they are related) should I pursue this?

    I don't know if a cat scan would detect gallstones, and some other liver problems. I would probably ask for an ultra sound to find out what it could tell you.

    It does sound liver related to me, and if you don't pursue it, it could just end up getting worse. Why tolerate the pain and uncertainty, when a doctor can set it straight or at least let you know what is going on? IF it is the liver, you don't want to wait too long to seek help because the liver is such a vital organ. I know it is scary to wait and see what is wrong, but the fact of not knowing would kill me. Best of luck to you.
