Hi there I understand your concern... Possible causes- biliary causes of right upper quadrant pain include cholecystitis, cholelithiasis, and cholangitis; colonic causes are colitis or diverticulitis; and hepatic causes are abscess, hepatitis, or mass. Pulmonary causes are pneumonia or embolus, and renal causes are nephrolithiasis or pyelonephritis... I would suggest you to consult nearest surgeon for clinical examination and evaluation they will do the needful.

Hi there...it can be gastric pain. But even other diseases like hepatitis, pancreatitis, kidney stones, pelvic inflammatory disease, appendicitis. It will need clinical examination, to determine the condition. Ultrasound abdomen and pelvis might alos be required. So kindly consult a general surgeon for further evaluation.
