My husband has had acid reflux for months/years. He has started eating smaller meals etc. He now has a throbbing feeling on the left side under his rib cage, which is swollen too. It is visible and can be felt if you look or touch. Could this be an ulcer or is it his spleen? Any help could be appreciated…need to know if a gp visit would help or to go straight to the hospital?
Sounds like an enlarged spleen to me… sometimes caused by mononucleosis
may be pancreas or spleen. get a ultrasound of abdomen initially. consult a doctor after that
