Abdominal pain is any unpleasant and painful sensation in the abdominal region. The abdomen is an anatomical area that is bounded by the lower margin of the ribs and diaphragm above, the pelvic bone below, and the flanks on each side. The organs of the abdomen include the stomach, small intestine, colon, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. Occasionally, pain may be felt in the abdomen even though it is arising from organs that are close to, but not within, the abdominal cavity. For example, conditions of the lower lungs, the kidneys, and the uterus or ovaries can cause abdominal pain. Pain lasting more than a few days, be sure to first check with your doctor to rule out any serious or life threatening conditions.
