Avatar f tn I have a lump near my ribs on either side, it's above my ribs they feel fairly big but not sure of this is part of my ribs or unusual?
Avatar f tn I am under a lot of stress and someone mentioned Lymph Node overload? At times the lump feels like a few little lumps and other times as one larger lump (about the size of half a grape). Does anyone know what this could be? I was also born with rheumatoid Arthritis if that helps. I am 29, female and have one child.
Avatar f tn Two days ago I realized i had pain above my right breast above my ribs. I am a female so I worry about breast cancer. When i try to strech to see if it goes away i hurts more and i have difficulty breathing it also irradiates to my right sholder blade.
301494 tn?1259518001 I have what feels like a swollen node on my left side. It's on my ribs just above where my elbow touches my side. It's about 1.5 inches long and half as wide. It's been there for a year or more. It's easy to see and fairly hard. It is not painful. Is this a swollen lymph node? Should I worry about it?
Avatar f tn Confirm the above -- I did martial arts for years and got my ribs smashed a lot. Had a chiropractor who was good at putting them back in place, but a bruised anything takes a lot longer to heal than most of us think. As LightSeeker said, Xrays don't show all that much, just bones -- they don't show the soft tissue around the bones, which an MRI can show, but I think you'll be fine.
Avatar m tn I have a pea-size lump about 2 inches above my collarbone and to the right of center on my neck. It is wedged between 2 muscles, and it is very movable. I had it checked by my GP, who told me that in her opinion it was most likely a little cyst, and not to worry about it unless it grew in size.
Avatar n tn I get a on n off buring sensation in the area that I have the lump. Left side right under my ribs. If I lean forward I feel the lump behind too more towards my back.I often get soreness there like I worked out my abs extremly. I had er visits. Xrays. St scans. Ultra sounds n they said nothing seems abnormal. When I strech to the right my left side feels tight like streching a rubber band. If I lay on my stomach I literally feel a buldge pressing onto whatever I'm laying on.
Avatar n tn About a month ago and a half I experienced sharp pain in the middle of my chest towards the left breast. The breast itself was painful. Saw 2 doctors, found a lump but nothing to be concerned about, pain thought it was inflation in my ribs. Refered to an ultrasound to be safe - nothing. Thought thank goodness. Went back to the doctor when the pain would not go away after 3 weeks. X-ray - nothing. The pain is not as painful, it just comes and goes.
Avatar n tn I also have no sensitivity in the nipple area. the breast is now lumpy from the treatments so it's hard to tell if a lump is suspicious or not. Let me know what you find out - and I will do the same. Good luck to you.
Avatar m tn Within a day or two after i developed a sharp pain in my ribs and a small lump above my left nipple. The nipples hruts when i touch it, almost like it's sore. I thought it would go away but Sometimes the rib pain was unbearable and i was growing concerned about the nipple lump. I went to urgent care in my town, they took some x-rays and i went for an ultrasound. Both showed nothing. The doctor there gave me a prescription for 800mg ibpreoufen.

Avatar m tn I’ve been experiencing right sided pain for about 6 months now. The pain is just under my right ribs. The pain radiates to my back as well. I’ve practiced weight lifting, swimming and karate for years. I'm completely unsure what caused it. It started as very minor pain, more like pressure. I’m fairly athletic and exercise 3-4 days per week, or used to… I haven’t been able to since I’ve had this side pain.
Avatar n tn I have muscle spasm in or around the ribs on both sides (in the front under the breast and sometimes in the back at the same horizontal position), it feels like a ball rolling, in that it switches sides. It occurs even at night during sleep, painful enough to wake me. I only know that when I relax and stretch (the side where the knot is) using several positions I have to wait till it goes away, in many cases to have it return in other places described above.
Avatar n tn I was very surprised and nervous to discover a tender lump the size of a chestnut, just below my sternum and above my stomach. All kinds of scenarios went racing through my head! But after reading the multitude of posts on this website, I feel much more at ease that I'm experiencing "xiphoid process" Thank you to all of you have posted, and helping those who just got here.
Avatar n tn While massage my left skull, I have noticed the lump located exactly on the left-side on the bone above my left-ear, as I pressed on it, the area seemed to trigger a point that made my migrane even painful, then noticed that it travels to my left eye and beleive it or not even my left sinus area. Ready to call the hospital for an appointment... Any suggestions on what to do in the meantime or anyone would know what this could be?
132217 tn?1217152617 When I first saw a lump that I knew was "baby" and not "abdomen fat being puffed up by theoretical baby" was when I was lying in a bathtub. Something about the position -- back flat but head tilted enough to see tummy -- made it clear that on the exhale, part of my abdomen was going down with the air going out, and another part was just, plain staying up there, totally unaffected by how much air I was breathing out.
Avatar f tn Hi. Since April I have had pain above my left breast. It's not constantly there, but it comes and goes. Sometimes it feels like a burning pain, other times it feels like a cramp. I've also felt it in my armpit at times and it will also creep up over my shoulder. Although I VERY RARELY feel it on the right side, it DOES happen once in awhile. But for the most part it's been my left side.
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with costochondritis (inflammation of the cartilage in the rib cage, caused by sever coughing, getting hit, even laughing) and I was put on a steroid to reduce the swelling. One evening I was massaging my aching side when I came across a lump on one of my ribs...I had never noticed it before. It's hard and smooth, and it feels like it's part of the rib, but it kind of sticks out, and it's not on my other side.
Avatar n tn it varies in location, sometimes its right below my bottom right rib, and sometimes its right above my appendix scar and the other is about an inch above my pubic region to the right a little bit. its hard to explain the feeling but its pretty mild but i feel it everyday for the last month and its starting to worry me cuz it wont go away. it sometimes shakes like a muscle spasm. its sometimes triggered when i smoke too.
Avatar m tn Hi I have a small lump inside of the left side of my neck. When I lie down on my side, I can feel it and it moves around slightly. Just above it to the right, is another lump which is bigger. I've had these lumps for over two years now and they have not changed shape or size that I know of from just feeling them. They do become a little painful if I touch them too much. Can you tell me what you think these are?
Avatar m tn I have this one spot just below my left ribs about 3 inches left from the middle of my abdomen and about 4 inches above my belly button. It's been like this since the beginning of February, after I had my gall bladder removed. I had mutiple CT scans and x-rays which showed up nothing. It feels like it's in the muscle (right under my skin), but it's hard to tell. Sometimes my lower left ribs ache, but I find myself rubbing it constantly.
Avatar n tn Hello. About 2 months ago my 30 year old husband discovered a painful lump in his breast near his left nipple. He had it examined by our PCP, who suggested a mammogram and u/s. The results came back as a category 4 last Friday. I called and got a consultation appointment scheduled with a surgeon for next Thursday.
Avatar n tn I too have a lump that is growing larger and larger on my left number 5&6 ribs. It is under my left breast and is now becoming unbearable. I was just put on pain medicine and will be having a CT scan asap. Never feel intimidated by a dr about your health. It's your body and you know if something is wrong. I am beginning to feel like i have trouble taking deep breaths. I just cannot get my ribs to expand for a huge breath. I was asked if there was a history of cancer in the family .
Avatar n tn In the beginning there was pain in the locations that eventually started getting larger. First there was a large hard lump on my left ribcage above my spleen. It got big, painful, and noticeable. Then there was one under my breast on the right side. I started working as a temp at a factory full time and underwent a move. Now I have 5 extremely painful lumps, (right upper chest, sternum and below were the additional locations).
