I have a constant dull pain on the lower right side of my abdomen . When I lay down and press in firmly I do feel a small hard lump. My bowels often feel like they are strangled, some sort of stricture happens and I am unable to have a BM and my blood pressure goes up. What is going on? I have had four abdomenal surgeries in the past.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

Lower right quadrant abdominal pain are associated with a few medical condition. The most common one being appendicitis / appendicular mass. Other possibilities are mesentric lymphadenitis, inguinal hernia, muscular ache and so on.

The abdominal pain and lump in right lower abdomen concerns me. Since you been exposed to 4 previous abdominal surgeries, there are chances that what you could have be related to those surgeries. A detailed abdominal examination, ultrasound examination and or CT/MRI scans of abdomen is warranted to confirm the diagnosis.

I suggest you to report to your gastroenterologist.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good health.
