Muscle spasms, soft mass above rib cage. History of dilated bile duct, fatty liver. Treatment?
i have a dilated bile duct and a fatty liver , plus i was a weekend drinker for years. in the last 3-4 days i have developed a large soft mass just above my rib cage. its more on my right side but is growing into my left side. could this be an abcess and should i go to the hospital. i do have constant pain but sometimes get a very bad muscle spasm there. like today i was in the pool got out and went in the hot tub, rite away i developed severe muscle spasms in that area.................thank you
I would suggest you to get CT and ultrasonography of this mass to confirm the dagnosis and show it to general surgeon. If he finds any suspicion he can also get needle biopsy test. it can be a tumour so you should not delay in diagnosis.
