Dull pain below right rib cage hurts from front to the back an I don't have a gallbladder what could this be?

Right sided pain

Gall_bladder
You need an examination, and possibly labwork and imaging, by a clincian in order to determine the many things that this could represent. It could still be gallstones in the common bile duct, pancreatic stuff, referred pain from elsewhere, musculoskeletal, etc. The list is very long and needs direction from an examination.

I am suffering from pain below my right rib cage (front). ultrasound is normal. i have fatty liver. i took antibio for my bacterial prostatitis.

Unrelated

Pain
Basically you have just described three unrelated symptoms. fatty liver is not painful and prostatitis is not related to the liver nor to the epigastric pain described.

Non painful swelling on right rib cage around the front middle.just appeared today.just had bloodwork chest xray yesterday all normal.sprain?

Doubt a sprain

Pain
Usually if you have a sprain of the rib muscles and tendons it is pretty painful. If this swollen area is not tender when you push on it, I would just watch it and wait, since the x-ray was fine. James N. Dillard, MD

Today I just found a lump under my left breast on the rib cage. It is very painful and I have another on left back rib which radiates to the front. Are these symptoms of cancer?

Need to see your doc

Cancer
Only a doctor's examination can clarify what it is. Any lump, if it is new and it is real, means something is wrong. It can be an infection(skin) or it could be something else.

Dr. Dan Lister answered:

I have gallstones, no obstruction and no infection. I have been having painful attacks for 18 mon, now a lump under my right rib cage in sever pain.?

See your doctor.

Cholelithiasis
You need to be seen by your doctor. You could have a stone stuck in the duct that drains your gallbladder and now your gallbladder is infected (acute cholecystitis). This can be a serious problem if not managed quickly.

Dr. Robert Rahimi answered:

Stomach pain 2 inches below right rib cage and 2 inches to the right of my belly button. I also have bloating and gas. There are two hard lumps underneath the skin which are painful.

Gallbladder or ulcer

Without knowing more, it is difficult to say what the cause is, however it can be related to your gallbladder (gallstones) or stomach (ulcer disease) especially if you are taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS like Motrin or Ibuprofen). You should contact your PCP to gather more information and possibly run some tests like an ultrasound. If you have fever/severe pain, go to ER.

See Doctor

Pain
Pain like you describe is a concern. Many possibilities from kidney stone to appendicitis. It may be a pulled muscle or gas pain. There is no way to tell without an an exam so I recommend that you see your doctor.

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

i have RUQ pain with nodules being palpable under the right rib cage they are painful when pressed what could this be a sign of i also feel the nodules under the ribcage under my right brrast?

UNDER the ribs?

Open-uri20120903-14800-ps032b
There is cartilage at the bottom edge of the rib cage. Inflammation there is called costochondritis. A doctor can tell if the "nodules" are just the regular shape of cartilage (which can feel lumpy), or if the "nodules" are some other disorder. That means a primary care doctor should examine the "nodules". If it is just costochondritis, then OTC Motrin or Advil may help.
