Hello from JA
Sure if you think picture shows anything, I'll take a look
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

There's this extra lining on my right side (to where my finger is pointing). When i pressed on it there's no hard lump. It just feels slightly more tense than the left. Other than that everything stays the same. I am worried.

OK
that is an area where one can have problems with the appendix or an ovary.

So for example a cyst.

Appendicitis can be brewing.

So play it safe and have an exam to make sure you are OK.

Sorry what are you asking
If you think the right side feels swollen in that location then you need an exam.

From the picture that I've shown you, does the right side feels swollen to you? Because when I lie flat down, both sides are flat and there isnt any swollen sight. its only when I stand up and I could see this stretch of "line" on my right

I can not feel your right side with a picture.

It looks fine in the picture.
