How long is he having pain abdomen? Does he have fever, vomiting? When the doctor pressed that area did he wince with pain?
Pain abdomen associated with tenderness needs further evaluation.
Usual cause of pain in right lower abdomen associated with tenderness is due to appendicitis
. But there will be associated symptoms like fever, vomiting.
Some infections like amoebiasis
can present with pain in that region. Usually it presents with dysentery
, low grade fever
Have urine microscopy and stool examination for cysts and ova done.
abdomen will be useful to rule out any major problems. How ever appendicitis is usually diagnosed based on symptoms and examination findings.
Hope you find my answer helpful.
