Swelling usually in the stomach too full and gaseous accompanied by belching and abdominal gurgling or rumbling manifests. Most of the time the causes are benign and include:
- swallow excess air
- syndrome irritable bowel
- intolerance to certain foods or ingredients (lactose, for example),
- drink too many carbonated beverages, and
- some drugs.
However, the strain may also indicate a more serious health problem. Therefore, it is important to be familiar with the warning signs and symptoms that severe swelling is associated.
SERIOUSLY swelling – warning signs and symptoms
bloating can result from liver disease or cirrhosis usually caused by cancer, hepatitis or excessive alcohol consumption. The liver is more susceptible to damage because it acts as a filtering station where the cancer spreads from other organs, because when cancer cells enter the bloodstream, eventually filtered through the liver. Other symptoms of liver disease are yellowing of the skin or eyes. advanced colon
can block cancer inside the colon, leading to swelling. In fact, the swelling may be the only early symptom of colon cancer when the cancer is higher in the colon, unlike colon located at the end of the colon rectal cancer, when normally it accompanied by bleeding and constipation worsening .
One of the most aggressive forms of cancer with low survival rates of pancreatic cancer. A serious group of symptoms that may indicate pancreatic cancer is swelling associated with jaundice, weight loss, lack of appetite and upper abdominal pain radiating to the back. Furthermore, the development of diabetes with bloating, weight loss and abdominal pain may also indicate pancreatic cancer.
This type of cancer usually has no symptoms in its early stages, or causes vague symptoms such as bloating, indigestion, flatulence and the upper abdomen. It is similar to pancreatic cancer because it only gives more severe symptoms such as weight loss, nausea and abdominal pain in advanced stages. The most important risk factor is Helicobacter pylori, as well as nitrates and nitrites in smoked and processed meats.
persistent bloating, feeling full faster, and pelvic pain are typical symptoms of ovarian cancer. Although it is the fifth most common cancer in women, it is highly lethal. Not give birth or give birth later in life, obesity, family history of ovarian cancer, certain genetic abnormalities, and long-term treatment with hormone replacement therapy are the most common risk factors.
Apart from abdominal distention, uterine cancer is also manifested by abnormal vaginal bleeding, an aqueous or bloody vaginal discharge, pelvic pain or pain during intercourse or urination. The most common causes include taking estrogen supplements in the absence of progesterone, tamoxifen, radiotherapy, family history of uterine cancer, or a family history of Lynch (a form of hereditary colon cancer syndrome).
ascites is an abnormal accumulation of fluid in the abdominal cavity usually caused by liver disease. This condition causes swelling, expanding abdomen and gain weight as fast fluids pools. On the other hand, if the swelling is accompanied by jaundice, which turns yellow eyes and skin, it can indicate a cancer that has spread to the liver. Ascites can also occur with milder forms of liver disease such as hepatitis.
Any weight loss of more than a few pounds, especially if it is 10% or more of their body weight without no significant change in diet, and is accompanied by abdominal bloating, can mean cancer. Weight loss can be the result of tumors that put pressure on the intestines, which makes you feel full after only a small amount of food, or substances secreted by tumors that suppress appetite.
diverticulitis is inflammation of the diverticulum, usually in the colon, resulting in inflammation, fever, and abdominal pain and tenderness accompanied by diarrhea or constipation. Standard treatment includes bowel rest with a liquid diet. Antibiotics are prescribed in case of fever. A high fiber diet is highly recommended after the acute episode of diverticulitis is over in order to ensure the flow of fecal matter in the intestines and to prevent future complications.
Pelvic inflammatory disease
sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia or gonorrhea can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease, which occurs when one of the bodies female players, such as the lining of the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries or infected. This condition can also occur during childbirth, abortion or miscarriage, or the insertion of an intrauterine device (IUD). Typical symptoms include swelling, accompanied by fever, pain and tenderness in the pelvic area. A vaginal discharge is the key symptom that suggests a PID. If PID is not treated can lead to infertility and ectopic (outside the uterus), so it is vital to have a pelvic exam and treatment with antibiotics.
This is an autoimmune disease that usually affects the digestive system, especially the small intestine or colon. Bloating is one of the first symptoms, as it may take years before diagnosis of the disease. It can cause narrowing of the intestines which ultimately leads to intestinal obstruction, which results in severe swelling, weight loss, nausea and vomiting after meals. When Crohn’s disease occurs in the colon, diarrhea with blood in the stool it is a typical symptom. Other symptoms outside the GI tract include mouth ulcers, joint pain, skin lesions and inflammation in the eyes.
When the swelling is accompanied with high fever (over 100 degrees Fahrenheit), usually is indicative of infection or inflammation, which is likely urinal, or gastrointestinal disease. White blood cell count will also be raised.
Whatever the cause, it is important to know that a disease is diagnosed the sooner, the more likely a successful treatments to cure the underlying problem.
