Lump above rib cage

Common Questions and Answers about Lump above rib cage


5354378 tn?1366812087 But is this is simple bruise or cracked rib, the best treatment is ice and rest. How does the injury feel? Is there a lump, or can you feel the edge of a rib under the skin? Bruising is normal, and so is a small, soft hematoma -- a lump from a blood clot under the skin over the injury. Ribs are injured all the time. This is why we have ribs -- to protect the organs inside of the chest, Ribs can take sharp bumps with little injury because of their construction.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar m tn I have just noticed that my six yr old daughter has a large lump or possibly her rib cage is protruding on her left side, near the bottom of her rib cage. I am going to be contacting my family doctor soon, but does anyone have any possible answers in the meantime?
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar m tn I'm a 17 year old hypochondriac too. I have a small lump on my rib cage && i'm quite scared. I haven't gone to the doc but..should i be worried?
Avatar n tn GP thinks possible infection and given me antibiotics. I also have tenderness between rib cage, stomach and left under rib cage. Pain worse if lying of left side. Had helicobacter pylori 10 years ago, GP said not have anything to do with neck or mouth problems. Any ideas what could be causing these problems? Thanks for listening.
Avatar f tn I have a vertical line that protrudes from above my belly button to under my rib cage. I also have lots of bloating, especially after I eat. I went to my family doctor and she ran some blood tests and I had an abdominal ultrasound... all turned up nothing. I'm scheduled to see my gyno in a couple months, think I'll also check with a gastro doc. Good luck. If I hear anything I'll post on the forum.
Avatar n tn I have poked around on my breast to check if there is a lump or anything and i cannot feel anything unusual - my upper rib cage area is also very sensitive. Was wondering if anyone else had similar symtoms and if anyone else might have a clue as to what i have got - firts i thought that i had bruised a rib or something like that but i have not hit myself in the area or bumped into anything. So i really am at a loss Any help would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn I also recently discovered a lump on my rib cage just under my right breast its about the size of a dime. I plan to have a follow up with doctor next month because I found a lump in my left breast a couple of months ago. I had a Mammogram and ultrasound. They both came back okay just showing thickening in my breast but my breast tissue was really thick and hard to read.
Avatar f tn When I bend forward, it feels like my left rib cage moves forward. Doctors originally said they don't replace the missing rib unless many ribs are removed.
Avatar n tn I am 29 and Three weeks ago I discovered a small(pea to marble size)lump about 4 inches below my right armpit on the rib cage to the side of my breast it is not located in the breast tissue. It's possible the lump has always been there and I have never noticed. It has increased in size minimally and several other small lumps have developed around the area in the last few weeks-one directly below the original and the others above.
Avatar n tn I get a dull ache/pain under the right side of my rib cage My sternum area gets very tender to the touch & seems kind of hard I fell bloated I belch alot I feel like there is a lump in my throat ( I'm constantly trying to clear it ) All of the above symptoms last up to 2-3 hrs. hours. Thank you in advance for anyone that could give me some insight on this for me.
Avatar n tn I basically have all the same symptoms as everyone here. Dull pain under my right rib cage, but in a way it feels like it is on top of my rib cage sometimes. I also have a dull pain in my lower right abdomen sometimes too. But i was diagnosed with ovarian cysts a long time ago. Anyways, yesterday I went to the Dr. and she ordered blood tests for my liver and anemia, (because I also have some tingling on my left cheek.) and an ultrasound for next week.
Avatar m tn I also have a pea sized lump on my rib (left rib cage) with the same popping feeling when I lean over. I've been reading around online and it sounds like it could be something called a lipoma. I have no idea what the popping feeling/movement is though. I ahven't been to a doctor about it...yet. SOmetimes I get a dull or sharp pain there after I eat as well. You too?
Avatar m tn Lightly pressing on it makes the pain worse also at the bottom right of my back where the rib cage ends there is a large lump the doctor said was just a bone not sure if that relevant or not.. but this lower right back pain is constant and has been for the past week sometimes pretty severe but i have a high pain tolerance so i wouldnt know if it was to severe.
Avatar n tn I have a lump under my left breasts,above my rib cage and sometimes I will get some pain hear and there in my left breasts. Should I be worried? I haven't gotten a pap or breasts exam because I currently don't have insurance. But should I worry? I'm only 21.
Avatar f tn Years ago I had a golf ball size above my left rib cage....when I shaved my legs or put socks on it would roll upward....I couldn't move till it dropped back down.Recently it has moved to right side & bothering me more.....uncomfortable....What is it ??????????
2081347 tn?1332176741 Three days ago I found a large, round lump in my right breast just above my rib cage. It was free moving. It was NOT there just 24 hours earlier. I had my physical 2 months prior and a clean mammogram 1 month prior. I saw my Dr. the following day, but couldn't get in for an ultrasound until this coming Tues. Yesterday, the lump had grown in size and my breast above my nipple to my upper breast bone has "caved in" somewhat--not significantly, but enough that I can feel it.
Avatar n tn When the pain becomes unbearable it feels like something is coming out of my rib cage and when I apply pressure it feels like I move something back inside. It is scarey that I am afraid to drive for the if that pain comes it is so bad that you can not even imagine. After some research I am wondering if its my spleen. My doctor said that he thinks my abdominal wall could be inflamed and gave me celebrex. Help.
Avatar f tn a little bigger than a baseball) that i can occasionally feel just below my rib cage and above my belly button. When I feel it I can feel a rythmic pulse... just actually feeling it is uncomfortable, and it moves about... Occasionally I get sharp rapid pains under both sides of my rib cage and even experience speratic episodes of breath shortness... I dont know if any of these are connected.... Does anyone know if this is normal?
Avatar n tn i just found a lump, right where the xyphoid is.Above stomach in the center and below rib cage. I have no pain but i do work out. I just want a little knowledge before i get checked out.
Avatar n tn When I arrived, they disclosed that the mammogram was negative - however, the MRI showed a lump left breast. It is non-palpable on the medial side of the breat close to the rib cage. The ultrasound showed nothing. Given two options. #1 have a biopsy with an MRI or wait 6 months and repeat the MRI. Have chosen to get the biopsy. What are the statistics on breast MRI? If nothing shows on mammo/ultrasound but MRI, which do you trust?
Avatar f tn Mine is in my left armpit mostly and then in my shoulder, neck, upper left rib cage and back. All on my left side. Sometimes it feels cold,sometimes it is hot and tingly, sometimes it is just a throbbing pain other times sharp shooting pains. Most of the time my left arm is affected. I have had all the heart test run and when I felt a lump under my left armpit I had a mammogram done. They said it was just lympadema or something like, basically a fatty tumor and nothing to worry about.
1391011 tn?1282966669 Another doctor who I was referred to said they did the wrong type of scan and that I would need a chest wall ct scan since the lump seems to be above my rib cage and extends up about 2 inches. I have to wait for the new scan because of no insurance/funds. I've had to cut my work hours over the last few months, so it's been tough. If anyone has any idea what this might be, please reply. I'm hoping that someone can give me some info that will help lead to a diagnosis.
Avatar f tn The second time I noticed it was on the night of the 21st, and the lump has not moved or changed in size since that night. It starts right at the bottom edge of my rib cage, and about 1 inch in from my side, then it stops right when it gets to my belly button. It moves around easily, and it feels smooth not bumpy, but it is very hard, and is just smaller than the size of both of my fists put together side to side.
Avatar f tn Hi, I went to the doc today because I am starting to have these same feelings just under my right breast. It hurts severly along the edge of my rib cage starting just below the bottom of my boob. I was told that it was an inflamation of the cartladge in between my ribs. I also have a knot with almost unnoticable brownish bruising. I was told to take naprocen and "be very careful". I'd like some better answers too. Maybe it will go away though.
Avatar n tn Some weeks ago I discovered by accident a lump or mass about 2-3 inches above the navel, in the middle of the abdomen, which had no feeling if not touched, but was very tender--painful when pressed. A few days later (and since then) it was not longer tender: if pressed it doesn't hurt at all. I have no other symptoms and am very well, except the rectum often has some strange feelings, not pain, but as if the rectum was trying to open? really don't know how to describe it.
Avatar m tn Today, I felt a smaller (about the size of my pinkie finger tip), firm lump just below his rib cage on his right side. Considering that he had an umbilical hernia that healed on its own, I could understand he one. The second is freakng me out now. Any guidance or advice from anyone is appreciated!
