Stomach

Your stomach is unique, and the number of problems that it encounters is practically endless. It can be the cramps that you get when you gobble down your grandma’s rich chicken salad, or the usual bloated stomach when you are out with friends. But what are the problems that should be a matter of concern for you?

Stomach Aneurysm or Aortic Aneurysm

Also known as an abdominal aortic aneurysm, it often grows slowly and usually without any symptoms. It is difficult to detect as many aneurysms never rupture. Many of them may start small and remain that size, but a lot of them expand over time and some may grow rather quickly. Again, to predict how fast a stomach aneurysm may enlarge is tough.

Its symptoms may include:

  • Pulsating feeling close to navel

  • Deep and constant pain in your abdomen

  • Back pain
