Dull pain in abdomen?

My sister has had a dull pain in her right lower abdomen for about two years. Ive tried to talk her into going to the doctor to no avail. As of recently the skin on her abdomen has gotten very sensitive. Im wondering does this sound familiar to anyone or does anyone have any experience or idea what this could be. Please help!!

    Whether it's a mild stomach ache, sharp pain, or stomach cramps, abdominal pain can have numerous causes. Some of the more common causes include:

    Indigestion

    Constipation

    Stomach virus

    Menstrual cramps

    Food poisoning

    Food allergies

    Gas

    Lactose intolerance

    Ulcers

    Pelvic inflammatory disease

    Hernia

    Gallstones

    Kidney stones

    Endometriosis

    Crohn's disease

    Urinary tract infection

    Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

    Appendicitis

    Treating abdominal pain depends on its cause. Treatments can range from medications for inflammation, GERD, or ulcers, to antibiotics for infections, to changes in personal behavior for abdominal pain caused by certain foods or beverages. In some cases, such as appendicitis and a hernia, surgery is necessary.
