What causes pain in navel?.

Hi I am Chitra Das, house wife from Gushkara, Burdwan. I have a pain in the left side up the naval fot the last 6-8 months. After tea it appears and after having something it disappears for some time and after some time it again appears. I have done USG and the report says to consult "Gut Pathology". I have tried medicines like antacid, albendazole, raviprazol tablets etc. but it does not go. Please help me. YYYY@YYYY

Hi Chitra Das.
Thanks for your query.
Your history of pain on the left side of the naval, increasing after tea and reducing after eating something is suggestive of Gastric Ulcer or cancer.
USG is of no help in such diseases. Since you have not been much benefited with Antacid, albendazole, Rabeprazole, you need to undergo the following investigations ;
Upper GI Endoscopy and CT scan of abdomen to get a correct diagnosis , then only proper treatment is possible.
Consult a Gastroenterologist.
