Pain in the liver area when I press, and a strange sensation.

Hi all,

I am an 18 year old male.

For about the past 6 months I have noticed a pain in my liver area (Right side, just beneath the ribcage) when I put pressure this area. The reason I was prompted to do this initially was because I do have a small history with alcohol, and I tend to get paranoid about health issues. I don't feel it when I don't put pressure, but consistently feel a dull ache when I do. Additionally, I feel something "hollow" when I press on it, as if there is a hollow cavity of air in it or something (Though this may be the gall bladder???).

I just worry because I went through a rough patch the last 2 years, and I binge drank quite a lot, about 20 to 70 units a month. I don't drink very often now, but when I do I still binge.

Is it normal to feel a dull aching pain when you put pressure in the liver area? This is probably me just being a hypochondriac but I need some reassurance.
