Italian term or phrase: palpatorio
From an awful text for translation (!) of a patient with multiple myeloma:

Under 'clinical assessment', after weight, symptoms, physical examination etc.:

Linfonodi: Non adenopatie superficiali significativi; Altro: regressione del reperto **palpatorio** a carico del tavolato parietale al centro, dopo RT;

Epicrisi

...

Thank you!

English translation:palpatory
Explanation:
you could use the same adjectival form

Seems to be more common in osteopathy and chiropractice, or perhaps a bit old fashioned in medicine

This quote is from 1967:
Unusual auscultatory and palpatory findings are described in a case of acute destruction of the mitral valve by staphylococcal endocarditis.

You could perhaps also use "palpable" which is more common and implies that the finding or lesion was detected on palpation
Using an adjective would allow you to keep the same sentence structure
"regression of the ADJ+NOUN"
