Home > Health Library > Abdominal Pain
Abdominal (or belly) pain can be felt in many different parts of the belly. If you see a doctor about belly pain, he or she will ask you questions to find out where you feel the pain the most. The location of your pain can help the doctor know what might be causing it.
One way to describe the location is to think about your belly as having four sections. With your belly button in the center, the four sections are upper left, lower left, lower right, and upper right. You can describe the sections from your own point of view.
