I am a cancer doctor
cancer would be very unlikely
without examining you and doing some testing, it can be hard to know
could be a pinched nerve from your spine.
or irritation of your diaphram.
you should see your doctor if you are worried and get some testing
it may not be anything.
could be a mild viral infection or costocondritis inflammation of a rib or cartilage.
could be a pulled muscle from spots or running or lifting weights.
This pain is classic for gallstones.
That would be the first thing to think of.
You need an exam...for any new pain.
You need an ultrasound.
Get that today if you can.

gall stone pain usually causes pain in the right anterior abdomen below the ribs
that is the classic location of gall stone pain.
an abdominal ultrasound of the gall bladder is done through the front of the abdomen.
most gall stones would pass on their own and cause temporary pain.
fatty meals and alcohol use can also cause gall bladder inflammation.
but it doesn't sound like that is what is going on.
