You think so? I get paranoid because my mother passed away from pancreatic cancer and I worry that's how it may begin, with pressure or discomfort on the ride side - ??
The pancreatic cancer may begin with pain in midline of abdomen.
There may alternation in food habits with compression symptoms in later stages.
It may present with intestinal obstruction.
Altered bowel habits.
There may be swelling in upper middles of stomach.
So that would be the midline of stomach, like just above belly button? I don't have that at all.
So you should not bother.
Thank you! Now, if the pressure continues or actually turns into pain, I should go for an ultrasound on the abdomen?
The best is CT abdomen.
The ultrasound may not give clue in early stages.
Okay, I'll remember that. But why would the pressure be only on the RIGHT side??
The right colon is situated in right upper corner of the abdomen,here it takes turn so there is bit a longer stay of food & distension by gas.
So that it does lead to pain.
There may also be other reasons for this like involvement of gall bladder by stones.
