Hello,

Pulsation in the left side of the abdomen may be a normal phenomenon in thin individuals. It is nothing but aortic pulsation.

A rare possibility like hemangioma or liver pulsation or transmitted pulsation seen in tumour lying on the aorta.

Please consult your physician he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
