Detailed Answer:
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in XXXXXXX I am a Gastroenterologist (DM).

Pain on right side below rib cage can be due to:
1. Gallbladder disease like gallstones, cholecystitis
2. Liver- fatty liver, abscess
3. Billiary tract
4. pancreas
5. Intestinal pain
6. or it may be acid peptic disease

So I will advise you to get yourself examined by a doctor who may advise you to get an ultrasound abdomen to confirm the cause for pain

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. If you have any further query I will be happy to answer that too. Remain in touch and get-well soon.
