The abdominal cavity is a place that can be examined with the help of palpation. It is easy to detect any tumors, a hernia and palpate the organs. But sometimes patients complain that the stomach hurts when you press it and then the specialist appoints additional diagnostic methods that help to find out the cause of the unpleasant symptom.

Causes of soreness

Abdominal pain may occur in the following cases when pressing:

  • Acute appendicitis;
  • gastritis in the acute stage;
  • peptic ulcer of stomach and duodenum;
  • gastroesophageal reflux disease;
  • Crohn's disease;

  • poisoning with low-quality food;
  • pathology of organs located in the small pelvis( uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, etc.);

Looking at the table, you can briefly learn about the cause of the pain and the location of its localization.

Diagnosis of abdominal pain

If there is pain in the lower abdomen, the navel or side of an unclear etiology, you should immediately consult a doctor or call an ambulance. The doctor needs to thoroughly and accurately palpate all parts of the abdomen in order to more accurately understand what pathology this patient may have.

After the examination, the specialist marks the point of "tenderness" - the place of the highest sensitivity in a certain zone. In addition, the medical worker collects an anamnesis:

  • when the first signs of the disease appear;
  • for the first time does the patient experience such symptoms;
  • in which case there is pain and when it begins to increase;
  • which additional signs appeared or were available, for example, stool disorder, vomiting, hyperthermia, etc.
Important! In a child, the diagnosis of the disease can be difficult.

This is due to the fact that the baby can not independently point to the place where the pain is localized, and to name other symptoms of the pathology( with the exception of those that the parents themselves can observe personally).

Why does the upper abdomen hurt?

To timely and correctly diagnose pathology, you can take the following measures: radiography of abdominal organs, ultrasound of the stomach, clinical and biochemical analysis of blood, laparoscopy( for diagnostic purposes during surgical treatment).

The photo shows the belly zones of a man, with palpation of which one can assume one or another pathology. They also diagnose problem areas not only in adults, but also in children.

At palpation, the doctor can mentally diagnose, which is further confirmed by a comprehensive survey of

. First aid

. Under no pretext should anesthetics be taken, as the clinical picture can be highly distorted. To relieve a bit of pain it is allowed to apply ice to the site of its localization.

After the pain has decreased, it is necessary to see a doctor for help as soon as possible, because if you do not, serious consequences can occur, up to a lethal outcome.

Remember! Pain - a serious bug, which indicates the presence in the body of any pathology. In no event should this fact be ignored.

Soreness in the abdomen can indicate the malfunction of the heart, lungs, digestive organs, and these are organs that are of great importance for the work of the whole organism.

Treatment of diseases that cause abdominal pain

Treatment of each disease that causes abdominal pain, individually. For example, appendicitis is treated only surgically, i.e.removal of the inflamed appendix( appendectomy).Treatment of gastritis involves taking antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, analgesic drugs and adherence to a strict diet.

Stomach ulcer and 12 duodenal ulcer will not do without taking antibacterial drugs, drugs that reduce the acidity of the stomach, medications with enveloping action. Gastroesophageal reflux can be cured with fractional food, antacids, proton pump inhibitors.

If conservative treatment does not give positive results, surgical intervention is indicated. Therapy of Crohn's disease directly depends on the severity of the disease and the location of the localization. With narrowing of the intestine, suppurative inflammations and inefficiency of drug treatment, the operation is shown.

Individual therapy

Urinary tract infections are treated with antibiotics after the bacteriosia has been performed to identify microorganisms and their sensitivity to certain drugs. Getting rid of diseases of female genitalia also does not do without antibiotics, besides, it is worth paying attention to the cause of the disease and the place of its localization.

In some cases, a surgical procedure can not be avoided. Obligatory conditions on the way to recovery are refusal to smoke and taking alcoholic beverages, adherence to a strict diet prescribed by a gastroenterologist or other specialist.
