Dear madam, is it B or C? This symptom can be related to your primary disease especially if liver is enlarged. But also gallbladder stones and infection can cause it as well, it is more often in right side but can be located in whole abdomen. Splenic and gastric disorders can cause such a pain so you should do gastrology work up to rule out gastritis and ulcers. The third thing to consider is a lungs inflammation, pleuritis or ribs micro-fracture so ask your GP to advice you how to check all these conditions i ve mentioned.

Wish you good helath, Dr. Ivan Romich
