Lump above right rib cage

Common Questions and Answers about Lump above right rib cage


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 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 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 n tn My pain is in the upper right rib cage and behind right breast. Hurts like broken ribs or tearing and burning just under ribcage. Laying on the painful side is more comfortable than any. Hurts too bad to breath laying on back. Really hurts front and back right side boob and ribs when i cough..thats the worse part..coughing.
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 m tn I have the same thing a large hard lump on my right lower rib cage in the back. It has been there for some time and I noticed it larger than it used to be. I don't have any other symptoms so im not sure if I should worry.
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 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 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 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 I don't know if there is any treatment that can help this. It feels like something is jabbing me, right under my rib cage. i can elicit the soreness if i press on the area but it seems to move around and not always be in the exact same place, and pushing on it seems to ease it and it will go away, and that is not a bad pain, it's mild. Are there brace type supports that can be worn that would help? I do not understand what is wrong but i don't want it to keep getting worse.
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 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 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 ??????????
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.
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 it seems to be right in the center or my chest and along my right rib cage. not sure what it is but i should reallygo check it out. Im not the only one wow. Are you all smokers too?
Avatar n tn I have had alien pain prblem under my right lower rib cage for at least 8 or nine years. I first went to gastro doc. Had rib cage pain, stomach pain and dyspepsia at that time. He did blood test, endoscope, colonoscopy, and ultrasound of all organs in stomach. Everything looked good. Gave me pills for dyspepsia. Returned several times over next couple of years with same type of problems. He said I had something going on, but it wasn't gastro.
Avatar f tn I have this problem as well but it's above the right breast and in the right shoulder blade area. It feels like it goes right through from front to back. I first noticed it after I moved something extremely heavy, but it doesn't go away. I haven't had a mammogram in years and it's scary. And the stress in my life is almost crushing - I wake up hyperventilating, but it's been that way for years. This pain is relatively new.
Avatar n tn I too have pain in the right side, between the bottom of my rib cage and the hip bone. It gets bad enough to wake me in the night. I've had this for a couple of years. It's worse if I lay on my right side. I can get SOME relief if I lay on the left side and massage the right side. I have had an internal ultra sound, a CAT scan and a colonoscopy all of which are normal. I have thought it might be my appendix, but a lot of you have had yours out. I never thought about the liver or hepatitis.
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 There is a pain in my upper abdomin that comes and goes It starts from About an inch or inch and 1/2 up in the rib cage not going farther up than the 3rd rib from the bottom, and spreads down about about two inches from the bottom rib and streches back to the Right side but does not follow all the way to the back. And does not strech to the middle of my abdomin. Thinking Boxing - Imagine if some one gave you a left hook to the body about where his fist would connect is where the pain is.
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!
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 n tn hey im a 17 yr old male and i have just started getting a similar pain on my right side. 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.
Avatar n tn I know i should post under neurology (i have no credidcard ) i have been getting this numb tingle on my right side about 2 or 3 inches from my spine, and under the blade. I have searched threw symptoms of others with back prob. but I haven't found anyone with my symptoms of a numb mid or upper back.I have had this tingle for about 2 years, almost every day.
Avatar n tn I am a 29 year old female and about a year ago, I noticed a large hard mass just above my right clavicle and slightly in my neck (since that time it has grown more and is further in my neck), however there no pain assoicated with the mass other than periodic twinges. I went to my GP who recommended an ultrasound and a blood smear. The blood smear indicated I had an elevated WBC and platelets. The ultrasound showed a mass in the right supraclavicular region. They recommended a CT scan.
