Se a dr: There are many causes for right sided abdominal swelling( abdominal wall muscular related, liver or gallbladder just to name a few). Some females taking bcp;s can develop benign liver tumors . Therefore a visit to a dr can rule out all the bad things , they may order an ultrasound exam or a ct scan if something is there.

Abdominal swelling: Vague symptom. Have to give more information to get proper recommendations. Also best to follow up with your doctor when in doubt.
