Pain on right side of stomach, usually after eating... CAncer? Gallbladder? Something else?

Gallbladder disease, ulcers, and pancreas problems are all possibilities. Cancer is not likely at age 31. Initially, I would try antacids, such as Tums, to see if you get any relief.

Maybe: There are many causes of belly pain, some of which are simply annoying, others are deadly. Assuming your doctor did thorough interview & exam, if stomach acid seems to be most likely cause, then high dose omeprazole (Prilosec) can help determine if acid is to blame. If symptoms persist, then other causes should be investigated. Acidity usually affects only upper, central abdomen. ...Read more

Hi can triple therapy for my ulcer be causing the pain in my upper abdomen after eating and into my  back, right side high up?

Unlikely: Triple therapy is used to eradicate helicobacter pylori, a bacteria which can cause ulcers and even cancers. The pain you have may be due to progression or worsening of your ulcer. You should tell your health provider promptly about this symptom. Worsening pain or other symptoms may be a reason to perform an upper endoscopy to visualize the stomach and esophagus. ...Read more
