Doctor can check: In that area are the liver, gallbladder, part of the intestine, and of course some muscle and ribs. The right kidney is deeper inside, near there. One's primary care doctor can examine to see if there is any reason to worry. A patient can write down details such as when the pain started, was it sudden or gradual, was there any trauma (such as in sports), etc., and show the details to the doctor.
