General Surgeon 's  Response
Pain in the Upper abdomen just below the ribs on left side is not a serious condition.If the same pain is on Right side,you should exclude Liver ,Gall bladder disorders.But,If your pain is till persisting ,Go for an Ultrasound Abdomen to rule out Kidney stones.If you are feeling a lump in the Ribs,Go for X ray chest - AP view and PA view.If you are a Smoker and Alchoholic,Please stop them and see the results.You can review with the reports.
