Liver pathology, like a large cyst in the liver can be the cause for your symptoms and it is therefore, important to consult your doctor for an examination, blood tests and abdominal ultrasound, to explore the cause of your inconsistent pain. If the pain is associated with your menstrual cycle, your doctor should consider endometrioses. This is not a common condition but all avenues have to be explored.
