Hypogastric Pain - Differential Diagnoses
How would one approach a patient who complains of pain in the hypogastric region?
I came across one who also suffered from constipation and so immediately (possibly wrongly) put it down to side-effects of their laxatives (lactulose, previously laxido).
I understand an abdominal examination must be performed but are there any other tests that would be useful? Besides asking about weight loss/lethargy to screen for cancerous problems?
