  • pain in lower right rib cage

    An off topic but maybe not?

    Any idea on what this could be?

    In my research it seems to be liver/gaul bladder related.

    Could this be a lung problem?

    going tomorrow for CT scan of chest ab and pelvic so I guess I will find out..

      Request a CT of the chest. I had a metastisis in my mediastinum which caused pain in my ribs. Not meant to scare you, but better to be on tha safe side.

        downing a bottle of readi cat as we speak (orange flavor) umm!

        This will be my fist cat since detection.

        chest ab and pelvis.

        I am guessing you pain must have been upper rib cage?

        Mine is in the last ot the lower right ribs.

          Long time ago post = did you ever find out what it was? My son is complaining of pain under his lower right rib post RPLND. He was all clear from the CT and surgery so it isn't cancer.
