What is the bad ticking sound when first starting for the day in the engine block area?

It seems to be ticking in the right side lifter area or under the thermostat on the block. Especially during a cold start. One guy I took it to said it was the camshaft (worn) and another said it was the lifters (probably worn).. Any other opinions or easier fixes?
