In brief: May be serious
Pain in the right lower abdomen is one of the symptoms of appendicitis, although other things can cause it.
If it changes with breathing it can be a sign of an irritated abdominal cavity (peritonitis), although it can also be muscular, hernia, other infection, etc. If it gets worse, and other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, fever exist, be seen!
