Alternate Names : Abdominal Pain, Abdominal Discomfort

Abdominal Distress | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the condition diagnosed?

A medical history and physical examination often lead a healthcare provider to narrow the list of potential causes for abdominal distress. Further testing depends on the possible remaining causes. Testing may include blood tests and X-rays. The provider may order an abdominal CT scan or abdominal MRI. Abdominal exploratory surgery may be needed to make the diagnosis.
