Thanks for your question.

Pain in the left hypochondrium may be due to various pathologies.But before coming to a definite diagnosis I will like to ask certain question's:
What is your age?
How is the pain? Is onset sudden gradual?How does pain aggravate and decrease?
Is there associated Fever,Decreased appetite,vomiting,weakness,jaundice?
How is your bladder and bowel habit?
Does the pain aggravates with fatty food?
What is the size of lump?
Are you alcoholic?
Any history of trauma to the area?

I will advice you to have some investigations done:
Complete blood count
Serum Amylase and Lipase.

For now I will advice you to continue the medications given by your doctor and inform me about the reports as soon as possible.

Wish you best of health

Best regards.
