Pain below ribcage on right side
I've had a dull, persistent ache under my right ribcage for a few months now. The pain seems unrelated to anything I eat, and it does not spread to my shoulder as I understand is the case w/ gall bladder pain or symptoms. No changes in bladder/bowel habits, either. The pain doesn't interfere w/ my functioning other than being persistent, annoying, and now worrisome because it has lasted so long. I am 54, postmenopausal, in good health, normal weight for my height/age. I have hesitated to see the doc because the symptom seems vague and I am reluctant to get on the test merry-go-round. Can you please give me an indication of what the doctor would begin to look for to determine the cause of this pain?  That way, I will know better what to expect. Thank you very much
