My mother has been having these on and off pains in her left side of her upper abdominal, close to her stomach. Her stomach is always swollen. However, whenever she touches tht spot there is a weird bump on it. Does anyone have an idea one what this could possibly be?

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Pain in the upper left abdomen and chest area can be due to stomach issues (GERD or hiatal hernia), spleen issues, due to an abscess below the left diaphragm, a hematoma (localized collection of blood), an abscess, or a muscle pull (as it happened while playing). Your mother may need an ultrasound and an endoscopy for confirmed diagnosis.

Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please consult your doctor. Hope this helps. Take care!
