 # Pain due to gallstone can be perceived in all areas except:
A. Right shoulder
B. Right hypochondrium
C. Right iliac fossa
D. Epigastrium



The correct answer is C. Right iliac fossa.

Gallstones may cause no signs or symptoms. If a gallstone lodges in a duct and causes a blockage, the resulting signs and symptoms may include:
  • Sudden and rapidly intensifying pain in the upper right portion of your abdomen (right hypochondrium)
  • Sudden and rapidly intensifying pain in the center of your abdomen, just below your breastbone (epigastrium)
  • Back pain between your shoulder blades
  • Pain in your right shoulder
  • Nausea or vomiting
Gallstone pain may last several minutes to a few hours.
