hi im 17 years old and recently, i have been inflicted by pain on my lower right part of my rib cage. its swollen to the side and is vry tender to the touch. I havent had much concern until my back, right behind the rib swelling, became painful and uncomfortable. Im debating whether or not to go to the doctors, cause im not sure if its really any big deal. anyone know what it might be? please, i have no idea.
