Thanks for your query. Based on the limited facts that you have posted it is difficult to make any comment on your query. Will you kindly provide me few more details to help me to diagnose your problem?
1) Do you have any Urinary symptoms associated with the pain?
2) Is pain intermittent or continuous?
3) Have you done routine Urine Test and Ultra sound scanning of the abdomen?
From the facts that you have posted it is likely that you may have stone in the Kidney.
Please consult qualified Urologist for clinical examination and further management.
Hope I have answered your query. Please feel free to ask if you have any more questions I shall be happy to help you.
Thanks with Regards.
