What causes the right side of the stomach to get swollen?

Customer Question

I am trying to ask about my friend. He described me I bent over to pick up something and all of sudden he felt that he will fall down and fell down. At the same moment he got up by himself and lay down on bed. After that he noticed that he got a swelling on right hand side of stomach. Can you please tell me what is that?

This can be a hernia coming out of the defective abdominal wall-- can occur from increased abdominal pressure.

The dizziness can be due to the sudden malpositioning of the canaliths in the inner causing lack of balance.
