Does ribs pain post an injury need medical attention?

I fell on concrete 12 days ago. No head trauma,hit r side of body on sidewalk. R knee abrasions large hematoma,bruising inside r wrist,ect. Took care of myself with help @ home. Today I m having pain under ribs,not fix,lower. Called PMD,was told she couldn t see me for 10 days. I m only concerned for any internal injury. I m also a hematology patient,low white count,M spike,been followed for 6 years. No do of cancer. Should I insist on seeing a dr tomorrow?

Hi,

Cannot say in your particular case, but generally, the M spike is a long term condition. It could become a cancer that generally goes into the bones, weakens them, increasing risk of fracture with pain. Most rib fractures do not need much treatment if they are not cancer.

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

Regards,
