Hello Yazid, Thank you for the question.

Where does this pleural effusion occur in the lungs? Do you know the cause of this pleural effusion? Pleural effusion is a buildup of fluid in the pleural cavity. The pleura is the membrane lining the lungs and chest wall. Between the two pleura there is a cavity containing a small amount of fluid that functions to help the movement of the lungs when breathing. If the amount of this fluid increases, the sufferer will experience pleural effusion with symptoms of chest pain, difficulty breathing, coughing, and fever. Pleural effusion can be caused by various health conditions such as pneumonia, tuberculosis, lung cancer, pulmonary embolism, heart failure, kidney failure, liver failure, and others. Treatment of pleural effusion depends on the underlying cause.

Pain in the right chest itself can be caused by various diseases for example:

pleural effusion pleurisy kostochondritis chest wall injury gastric acid disease anxiety disorders If pleural effusion occurs in the right chest, then this is what causes pain in the right chest. But if you experience it before on the left chest, then the cause of this right chest pain varies greatly as mentioned above.

To be sure, please check with your doctor because without a doctor's examination it is not possible the exact cause of this complaint is known. The doctor needs to ask further questions about this complaint, examine you, and perform other examinations such as sputum examination, x-rays, and others. The treatment that will be given by a doctor depends on the condition you are experiencing. Please avoid sudden body movements. You are also advised to avoid smoking. You can take pain medication if your chest pain worsens.

I hope this helps.
