Our expert says:
A swollen tummy could be caused by internal fat (in people who have the "apple" shape), or fluid (due to liver conditions), due to growths (like a big ovarian cyst or uterus growth), or due to bloated colon (like in spastic colon). YOur GP needs to examine you to see whether you need referral for further tests like a sonar of the abdomen, blood for liver and kidney function, referral to a gastroenterologist.
