Pelvic & Abdominal Pain

There are many causes of pelvic and abdominal pain, and at it’s most severe it can be incapacitating. At the Surrey Park Clinic our experienced gynaecologists will systematically evaluate your condition to establish the root of your discomfort.

Diagnosis

Pelvis and AbdomenThe majority of causes of pain will be clear from your history and initial examination. Often the consultant will back this up with some simple tests.

  • Urine sample to check for infection and blood cells.
  • Blood tests to check for infection and signs of peritoneal irritation.
  • Ultrasound scan to look for fibroids, adenomyosis, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, kidney problems and pregnancy related problems.
  • Laparoscopy: this is where a telescope is inserted into the abdomen via the umbilicus and the pelvic organs are inspected by keyhole surgery. The abdominal cavity is filled with carbon dioxide to enable a clear view of the whole area. Photographs, biopsies and samples for culture and sensitivity can be taken at the same time.
