Hepatitis B Symptoms

Hepatitis can cause mild or moderate pain in the abdomen as a result of the inflammatory reaction of the liver and a rapid increase in its size. Most often, when palpation of the abdomen reveals pain along the lower edge of the liver, extending to the epigastric region and the left hypochondrium. The nature of the pains resembles biliary colic. In acute cholecystitis, there is usually more local soreness in the right hypochondrium.
