In brief: Kidney

Broad differential, but don't forget renal etiologies such as infections or stones.

In brief: Fracture/inflammatio

Could be several things- pneumonia, pe, pleural effusion, rib fracture, if on rightside liver. Please check with your doctor. Throbbing usually means inflammation/infection/ abscess.
