Right side: Persistent right lower abdominal distress, especially with associated tenderness, always raises the possibility of appendicitis which would indicate a repeat examination. Other possibilities include right pelvis pathology, right sided diverticulitis or Crohn's disease. An evaluation by an abdominal surgeon or gastroenterologist would be advisable in view of continuing symptoms.
