I recently noticed a lump on the right side of my abdomine. There was no sign of it before and was only found out as of recent. The interesting thing about it is that it appears about an inch above an existing scar. The scar comes from a surgery I had as a child, about 26 years ago, for a fatty tumor that was removed. Is it possible that the newer lump is coming in connection with the original, or should I fear the possibility of a liver issue.

Hi everyone, I am 36 years old and I have had a weird dull ache on my left side under my rib cage area. It kind of spreads to the middle area and back area as well. I actually noticed it about 4-5 years ago when I was fishing. I was reeling my bait in and my left side just started feeling like I needed to take a break. It is not like extreme pain, just uncomfortable, almost like muscles tensing up and you need to take a break. I also get it when I am washing my hair in the shower.
Every morning I wake up with a burning pain under my rib cage, it goes from one side to the other. I went to my PCP and he said, it was gas. But I don't think that it is, who has gas pains in the exact same spot every morning ? I went to my GI doctor and told him about it and he just told me to keep taking my Nexium 40mg. I told him that I take it everyday without fail. I showd him were the pain was and he just said, I think its your intestines.
I have now started recently having come of some drugs - with this band under my rib cage and pain down the centre of my rib cage. On listening to some of the comments above, some seem to think it is related to the Gastrointestinal part of the body, which would fit in with my condition, so perhaps this is part of the bowel system. I am due to have a second opinion in the next two weeks so will have this checked out, will come back if I find any information relating to this.

My daughter, 11, has a lump off the center of her rib cage under her right breast area. Definitely rib bones! She doesn't complain of chest pains or anything, but she is beginning to feel self conscience of this large protrusion. Doctor, 2 years ago, said it's nothing to worry about. What can it be, what can we do?
Im 30 yo male. I have been having this needles like pain under rib cage on left side and also bloating and excessive gas. Also after eating I get this heavy feeling and in the morning this feeling on the left side like there is a lump or heavy weight. So, i went straight to see a gastroenterologist with these symptoms. She did all blood tests and stool culture and nothing. Next week I am going to have a colonoscopy just to check for other things.

That episode passed, but since then, I have had a constant burning, throbbing-type feeling under the right side of my rib cage. I have had some heartburn and mild nausea at times too. I know I need to make an appointment with my MD, but was wondering if this sounds familiar to anyone else. I have talked with a few people who have had problems with their gallbladders and consequently had to had it removed.
Just a guess, but a pain under the right rib cage seems to me to suggest the possibility of an irritated gall bladder and/or gall stones. But whether the pain would move from the center of the stomach to just under the rib cage, I can't say. Maybe you could search "gall stones, gall bladder problems" on this website or some kind of diagnostic search engine to see if that might be it.

I have found a smallish lump on Jazzy's (10.5 yrs) side just below the rib cage. I can grab it and move it around. It feels squishy. Jazz does not seem to mind me touching it. Should I be concerned? I was thinking I would just keep an eye on it and make sure it doesn't get bigger. Thoughts anyone?
any peristing lump ought to be checked: 2 cycles is enough time to wait. It sounds like it may be a skin problem rather than a breast problem, but it's best to find out.
I thought it could be a swollen lymph node, but it doesn't move. It almost feels like it is attached to the top of my rib cage. (I am a 20 year old female, normal general health) I went to the doctor and got a blood test, urine test, and chest x-ray. Everything came back normal. So no I'm confused because I have no clue what this is! There is an obvious lump there, but I don't have any answers yet. I am going to ask the doctor what I should do next.
