Thanks for your query.
I appreciate your efforts for medical consultation in so much distress.

Liver is situated under the lower portion of right side rib cage. It is not palpable in normal conditions. When enlarge, it grow towards the abdomen. Usually cystic lesion in liver can present as swelling on liver.

Stressed and depression patient used to have poor bowel habit. Although other causes related to bowel is also possible for inadequate emptying of bowel feeling.

It is better to get yourself examined by general physician to confirm swelling over liver as swelling in that area may be related to other structures like gall bladder, intestine, abdominal muscle and rib. You may also need investigation like liver function test and imaging study of abdomen (Like ultrasound and MRI) to confirm diagnosis.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups.

Wish you good health.

I have had lower back and abdominal pain for 6 days now. The back pain has remained the same but in the abdomen , it keeps moving . At first it was a general pain all over and then was more apparent on the left hand side and down into the groin . Today it is more on the right hand side. It hurts to move or bend down and every time I roll over in bed, I am awakened by the pain. I have been to a walk-in clinic twice and have done 2 blood tests, 2 urine tests, an abdominal ultrasound, and abdominal x-ray and a rectal exam. The first blood test, urine test, ultrasound and rectal exam proved nothing. I am awaiting results from the other tests. It is disheartening to hear the doctor say that he doesn t know what is wrong. Please help...I am desperate!
