I have been having pain on my right side, starting from right where my bra line ends down to where my hip bone begins. At one point it was painful to the touch. Any idea what might be causing this?

Please see your doctor, telling us where it hurts in only part of the deal. You need a physical examination and maybe to blood tests or imaging studies done. Then the doctor puts it ALL together and makes a diagnosis.

Your liver is on the right side of your abdomen. You only have one liver, and you do need it.

Take care, Annette
