    You need a medical doctor to physically examine your pain to pinpoint exactly where it is at and what hurts where he/she presses and the amount of pain with pressure. No doctor or anyone else can do this over the internet. Even then, many doctors still cannot diagnose on simply a physical examination and may need other testing done to come up with a correct diagnosis. I will give you food for thought though that the liver rarely ever causes pain to people since it hardly has any nerve endings. I had end stage liver failure (cirrhosis) and had to get a liver transplant. My liver never caused me any pain the entire time.
