As can many things: Lower right abdominal pain can be due to one of many causes. For that location appendicitis is always a concern (pain usually worsens over time, with fever coming on). If one is constipated for several days, stool can back up all the way to the right side and cause pressure or pain. Kidney, testicular, or muscular problems can also cause pain there. A primary care or an ER doctor can evaluate.
