How is the condition diagnosed?

First, the healthcare provider will take the person's health history and do a physical exam. This may be all that is needed to figure out the cause. In other cases, further testing must be done. Which tests are ordered depends on the suspected condition. For instance, blood tests can diagnose hepatitis, pancreatitis, and other conditions. An x-ray of the belly, done with or without a special dye, may show an ulcer or bowel blockage. If cancer is suspected, a special x-ray test, such as an abdominal CT scan, may be ordered. Other tests are also possible.
