Avatar n tn I first noticed similar symptoms to the above about 6-12 months ago a small firm non moveable lump at the base of my sternum about 1 1/2cm. Hasnt bothered me but finally felt I should see the doctor to get it checked out. So today I went. He examined it and suggested a bony lipoma the only concern in his diagnosis was that lipomas are usually softer and moveable. He sent me for a chest x ray which I had today and blood tests which I will have on Friday.

Avatar n tn It is elongated and flat and extends from the base of the neck to the pit of the abdomen. At the very bottom portion of the sternum is a cartilage called the xiphisternum or xiphoid process, Sometimes is can become harden and curl upward. However this should not be reducible. In that area the hernia that is most prevalent is a Hiatal Hernia. I have one...and 60% of America develop one before the age of 60. I have never heard of this being palpable or reducable.

Avatar m tn i have a swelling or lump at the base of my penis. it is not usually sore except during sex and expecially for the first few minutes of erection, and can be particualarly painful if i get a strong erection. Occasionally other than during erection i am aware of it, but if i feel for it then it is always there and quite noticeable. What I find strange is that it is very "balanced" ... ie it is not to the left or the right etc.

976897 tn?1379167602 Before I make an appointment with my Doctor, I seem to have formed a lump, or bulge, or whatever the correct term is. It seems to be in the void right at the base of the sternum, right in the centre. It doesn't feel painful to touch or prod, but I've noticed I feel bloated a lot more lately. I have no idea what is there? I assume the Liver lays across that area and the pancreas? I have no real symptoms, but it just annoys me knowing it's there.
