General & Family Physician 's  Response
Hi,
It is very difficult to say any thing without exact site of bulging as if it is in the chest it may be due to cold abscess and below the ribs on lower right side it may be in connection with liver.
So without exact history like cough,temperature,abdominal symptoms it is difficult to say.
Consult physician.
