What does it mean if my lower left side hurts

Patient : What does it mean if my lower left side hurts
Doctor :   Hi. Thanks for your query albeit short and specific. The commonest causes of pain in the left lower side in both the sexes are: - Colitis, meaning inflammation of the large bowel in this area. It is descending colon and sigmoid colon. - Stone in the left ureter. - Small intestinal inflammation - Lymph node masses - And in addition the left ovarian cyst, Fallopian tube problems can cause similar problems in female patients. Clinical evaluation, physical examination, tests of blood, urine, stool and ultrasonography and / or CT scan can diagnosed most of the cases and an appropriate treatment can be done. I hope this answer helps you.
