Q.

LEFT SIDED ABDOMINAL PAIN

MY 8 YR OLD SON IS COMPLAINING OF AN UPPER LEFT STOMACH PAIN (WHICH GOES INTO THE SIDE). IT IS SORE TO TOUCH AND SORE WHEN HE MOVES OR COUGHS?
SHOULD I BE CONCERNED, HE DOESN'T AT THIS STAGE HAVE ANY OTHER SYMPTOMS.
THANK YOU

I would always be inclined to take notice of such a specific complaint especially as it is accompanied by tenderness in the area. There are many possible causes for this kind of pain.Please have him seen by a doctor.
