Question: I have had pain of the upper abdomen and in the back on and off for some time now. I had an MRI a few years ago and and CT recently and they showed lesions on the liver and minor calcification of the pancreas. I especially have pain at night and have lost some weight. What can be the problem?

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for the query.

Upper abdominal pain and back pain are usually caused by gallstones. Unfortunatelly some gallstones are invisible in CT. To visualize gallstones ultrasound should be done. Gallstones pain is usually associated with foods intake. Nausea can be present.
Another possibility is peptic ulcer. This issue is also invisible in CT or MRI. To diagnose it, gastroscopy should be done. This test will also rule stomach cancer out and can diagnose Helicobacter Pylori infection.
Liver lesion or pancreas calcification do not cause any pain at all.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.

Hello, I am a 20 year old female, the past month or two I have had random bouts of stomach pain and/or back pain. The back pain is usually on my left lower side above my hips but can be on the right occasionally. The stomach pain has never been localized. I had urine test done to check for infection and it all came back clear. The past two days I have had a low-grade fever that comes and goes. Any ideas?
