Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
How long you have such symptoms? Is the swelling at the same area you have pain?
Right sided lower abdominal pain can be due to the acute appendicitis or inflammation of the appendix. Intestinal infection is another common cause of such symptoms. You should get a CT scan of the abdomen and also stool tests to check for both the causes. Please follow a low FODMAP diet to prevent belly swelling from gas formation. Antibiotic course will help if infection confirmed. Best wishes
