Pain from Ileocecal Valve?

Answer

The ileocecal valve is used to 'stop up' the large intestine to prevent the contents of this body part from leaking anywhere else. If there is pain emitting from this valve, it is time to see a doctor. There is no way of knowing what kinds of issues it may be causing since they are all internal, so you should seek out the help of a doctor as soon as possible for a variety of internal tests. After the tests, the doctors should know if this valve is malfunctioning and needs repairs so that the intestines are operating as they should.
