Doctor

A:   Hi
Thank you for the question.

Many conditions can cause abdominal pain with palpation. The abdomen is a part of the body that is easily examined by palpation or touch. Certain abdominal conditions cause tenderness when a specific point in the abdomen or the entire abdomen is palpated. Causes are:
- Appendicitis causes severe abdominal pain when the right lower abdomen is palpated.
- Hepatitis can cause abdominal pain when the liver is palpated or examined by hand.
- Peritonitis can cause intense abdominal pain when pressure is applied to the abdomen during abdominal palpation.
If the pain persists or if the person believes the pain may represent a serious problem, they should see a health care professional.
A heating pad or soaking in a tub of warm water may ease the person's pain. If the pain continues to be for more than 3 days then you need to seek a Doctor's attention.

I hope this will help you. I wish a speedy recovery.
