"Swollen feeling" in lower right abdomen
For the past several years I have had a feeling of pressure in my lower right abdomen area like a water balloon under my right rib cage. My liver enzyme blood tests are normal and all blood tests come back healthy?? My doctor said it might be a fatty liver because I am a recovering alcoholic (I am 10 years sober now). I also had a ultrasound and everything came back normal? I have been to several doctors and they said you can't "feel organs" so I am confused? What could I be feeling? What is going one? Any thoughts?????

There is liver just below the right rib cage and also a transverse part of the colon. Enlarged liver (fatty liver can be enlarged) can be felt. So, if it is liver, every doctor could confirm this by simple palpating of upper abdomen.

If it is air in the colon, it would change from time to time.
If it is a tumor or cyst, it would be seen on ultrasound.
