Thanks for this question
At your age and being female the most likely cause is your gall bladder
I would get an ultrasound of that area.
If it shows stones or sludge in the organ you might need a gall bladder removal surgery
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Without any nausea, vomiting, or meal time symptoms gallbladder problem is not likely.
Sometimes liver problem can cause just pain like cyst --which is usually benign.
Most likely cause is muscle pull or nerve irritation related pain.
Thoracic spine arhritis can cause nerve compression causing under ribcage pain.
Chiropractic therapy should help in that case.

Thanks for this question once again.
At your age and being female gall bladder would be classic. Especially if it occurs with eating.
Liver pain would be very unusual.
Plus a nerve, muscle or bone would be too.
I would go to ER and get this checked. A gall bladder attack might be imminent.
Also, a duodenal ulcer can do it to. Make sure they check for that
please don't forget a positive rating. :)
