Right lower quadrant pain
I have recurrent acute pain in my right lower side, it lasts for a few hours and a hardened lump area can be felt during my attacks. I had a colonoscopy that showed colitis which i have had for some time but very mild. could this intermittent pain attacks be related to something else? i had a cat scan in the er which showed thickening and a possible neoplasm, but the colonoscopy ruled out the neoplasm.

Hi,
Was it a full length colonoscopy? ( was the doctor able to view till the caecum?)
Thickening could be either due to inflammation or malignancy. Biopsy of the thickened area should be done for evaluation.
