How your gastroenterologists in Rego Park, NY, can help you get relief from abdominal pain

Abdominal pain can be caused by many different issues and medical conditions. Sometimes it will go away on its own, but if it continues, you need to seek out help from your gastroenterologist. The gastroenterologists at Queens Boulevard Endoscopy Center in Rego Park, NY, offer a wide range of gastroenterology services, including diagnosis and treatment of abdominal pain.

If you are suffering from abdominal pain that came on suddenly, it could be caused by:

  • A kidney or bladder infection
  • A urinary tract infection
  • Kidney stones
  • Gastroenteritis or cystitis
  • Appendicitis or diverticulitis
  • Pancreatitis or peritonitis

If you are suffering from recurrent abdominal pain, it could be caused by:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease
  • Ulcers or ulcerative colitis
  • An inguinal or Hiatal hernia
  • Celiac disease or pelvic inflammatory disease

If your abdominal pain is increasing, it could be caused by:

  • Crohn’s disease
  • Hepatitis
  • Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma
  • Kidney, gallbladder, liver, stomach, or pancreatic cancer

So, how do you know if you should seek help? Call your gastroenterologist immediately if your abdominal pain is accompanied by:

  • Severe pain or a high fever
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Blood in your stool
  • Unexplained rapid weight loss
  • Yellowed skin and eyes
  • Abdominal swelling

Your gastroenterologist may recommend state-of-the-art diagnostic services to determine what is causing your abdominal pain. An endoscopy, colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, or abdominal ultrasound are the most common diagnostic procedures. Your gastroenterologist may recommend one or several of them to find out the source of your abdominal pain.

Abdominal pain may be minor, or it may be severe and a sign of a potentially serious condition. You can have peace of mind by calling your gastroenterologist. To find out more about the causes and treatment of abdominal pain, call the gastroenterologists of Queens Boulevard Endoscopy Center in Rego Park, NY, at (718) 406-8000. Call now and feel better!
