Thank you for your question.

It could be your right kidney or gallbladder or pain originating from your liver.

I would strongly recommend that you should have an ultrasound of your abdomen to have a look at these organs or preferably a CT scan of your abdomen which would give a clearer picture.

If your pain is severe you must go to the ER to be evaluated fully.
