Worst case scenario is that this pain represents pneumonia (lung infection). So, you should try to see a doctor as soon as possible. Pancreas, liver, stomach are other body parts that can cause right sided pain (right upper quadrant pain). Some blood tests and a chest X-ray may be required, please see your doctor.
