I found a lump on my outer breast (left)...somewhat on the way to the armpit. A few days later it began to hurt. The pain goes through the breast, up the armpit and is now spreading into my rib cage. There is now some swelling in the ribcage below left breast (almost feels as though the ribs are broken). I went to a Dr. and he had me get a mammogram and ultrasound.

I recently took my 8 year old son to the doctor because he has a lump on his rib. They did x-rays and they showed no abnormalities at all. The doctor told me that there is a notch that the end of the rib sits in and that there is tissue there. He called this an "over-growth" of tissue. He said we never would've even known it was there if he weren't as skinny as he is. I didn't push the issue, but it seems kinda strange for us to only now notice this.
I have a hard, "jelly bean sized", firm, non-movable lump on left side of my sternum, right between my breasts.
