Infection related to encapsulated inflamed area aeb abdominal pain
Risk for Infection related to possible of spread of the infection or sepsis
Acute Pain related to inflamed abdominal mass

infection related to encapsulated inflamed area aeb abdominal pain
is not an official nanda nursing diagnosis; abdominal pain is not a symptom of the diagnosis since this diagnosis does not exist.
risk for infection related to possible of spread of the infection or sepsis
you can't have the presence of an infection as a risk for an infection as a risk factor. it makes no sense. you can see the official nanda listing of the risk factors for this diagnosis on this webpage as well as outcomes and nursing interventions: [color=#3366ff]risk for infection
acute pain related to inflamed abdominal mass
saying "abdominal mass" is good enough. you don't have to specify that the mass is inflammed. the reason the mass is causing pain is most likely because it is pressing against other internal structures, not because of the inflammation. here are goals and interventions: [color=#3366ff]acute pain
