Hi there,
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Hoellering and pleased to help you.
Yes, it could. Then in would increase when you do situps or tense up your abdominal muscles.
If the pain is independent from muscle tension and related to defaecation, it may be a sign of diverticulitis. Then pressing into the left lower abdomen would be painful. In this case you should see a doctor.
I wish you a pleasant weekend!
