My husband has been getting pain in his right side. Firstly it was like pins and needles and now it is pain. This has been happening over the last 4 to 6 weeks. We think it would be just under his liver. He is worried that he might have cancer.

In the light of all this I think it is not cancer.It can be a gall stone problem which is leading to pain.However,it is must to go for an ultrasound.
