Bottom right of rib cage is painful

I've had this pain at the bottom right of my rib cage for months (maybe even over a year) but it was always fairly minor and I never though anything of it but the last few days it's been causing me more grief and I wanted to know if anyone had any suggestions as to what might be wrong.

It feels fairly bruised and is more painful when I press where I am in the photos (very bottom rib basically). At first I thought it was some kind of muscular pain as stretching it out seemed to relieve pain a bit but now I'm not sure it's making any difference.

(im sure you can guess the stars :/ )

Thanks for any help and sorry if this is in the wrong place, I had a look down the board and couldn't see anything specific for rib/abdomen problems!

Re: Bottom right of rib cage is painful

i am just wondering exactly where the pain is? is it ON the ribs themselves or what is kind of underneath them? this would be where the liver kind of sits the most. FB

Pretty sure it's the actual rib as the bit which hurts most when I press is pretty hard.

Re: Bottom right of rib cage is painful

Cortez,

It sounds like a possible gall bladder problem. Does it hurt more after eating? The gall bladder sits right under the right rib, and when it is inflammed, it presses on that area.
