I have had movement, like a flutter, in the left side of my abdomen for over a year with no pain at all. Could that be a cyst?

Answer

It is possible that something has caused your bowels to feel the normal gas that is present more readily. Many of us have benign cysts in our bodies that we don't know about unless we get checked for something else. It's worth mentioning to your doctor though at your next check up. And, if your symptoms worsen you may want to make a special appointment to get it checked.
