Common Questions and Answers about Lump behind rib cage

lump

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 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 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.
Avatar n tn Hi, for two days now I have a pain under my left rib cage (almost middle). Not sharp pain but pain that is there and would not go away. I use to have that same pain only when I have my period now it seem to be more regular. I also have pain in my left breast and under my arm (kind of bottom of where breast tissues are). I have seem doctors about breat examination but was told that is a tissue problem. I am 40 years of age. Do you think there is a problem where I shoud visit a doctor?
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 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 n tn I've also been getting sharp pains that normally don't last more than a minute on my right side below/equal with my rib cage. Lately they've been hurting a bit longer than a minute though. They're at random times, it doesn't have to do with eating our anything. During the past week, the sharp pains have spread to the other side (left) too. I'm 15. I haven't been to the doctor yet. My mom likes to ignore things. Help?
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 My problem is pain affects the left side : breast, underarm, neck, arm, and rib cage with severe pain in the upper pectoral muscle. I also found a lump in the one o'clock postion on the left breast three months ago, which I discovered while trying to determine why the pectoral muscle hurts so much. The MRI confirms intra and extra capsular rupture of left silcone implant with intracapsular rupture of the right implant.
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 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 n tn This all started after a serious bout with bronchitis that lasted for about 6 weeks that caused me to cough so much it would make me cry my rib cage hurt so much! When the bronchitis cleared up, I was left with this lump of phlem in the throat feeling which has been persistant for about a year now. I worry that I may have damaged my throat from all that coughing? Any ideas what this could be?
Avatar f tn Somewhere along the lines i developed this lump/mass/alien thing that developed on the outside of my rib cage, right below my left breast. The dr can feel it, its obvious when i stand up and hold my breast up....there is a lump there. Its there to the human eye, and you can feel it. Had a ct scan done......but it didnt show up. Or well, the dr didnt address it. All that was found is a cyst on my right ovary.

Avatar n tn I have it in my lower left rib cage. Its an inflammation in the rib joint... (each rib has a non-moving cartilage type join a couple of inches in from the sternum). It gets inflamed and is very tender to touch, but can also cause chest type pain. I haven't re-read anything about it for years, but I believe it can be caused by being "hugged" too hard.. Basically, the ribs are a "cage" and one side can "give way"... a bit like...

Avatar n tn lower abdomen, right flank and now a tightness under my right rib where I can also feel some kind of lump which I think may be my gallbladder. Its sore mostly when I eat. My stomach makes a lot of growling and high pitched noises too. The tightness under the right rib cage appears to be getting worse, its not really really painful but annoying and dull radiating into my back. Could I still have worms and could they be or have caused mischief to make me feel this way?
Avatar f tn Four days out of surgery my stomach opened up and I had to have a nurse come into my home daily to check my vitals and pack it. My massage therapist then noticed a lump on my rip cage and thought it was osteosarcoma. Doc scheduled to see surgeon. Surgeon removed lump in which she said it was a lypoma and it was flat and removed scar tissue again.. because of my smptoms got worse.my story goes on and on.
Avatar m tn I noticed that the pains behind my ears and neck seem to have gone down a little, but now started underneath my arm pits and the underside of my forearms’ and certain spots on each side of my rib cage and also groin. The pain would be mainly on the right side of my body, and then shift over to my left with the same general area. No fever developed, but pains in general lymph node areas. Diarrhea stopped. Week 7: Got tested again at 7 weeks, results were negative.

Avatar n tn Hello Mafabo, I too would thing that your pulled muscle would have healed by now. I assume you are a female. Your symptoms sounds like fibrocystic breast disease. Woman with fibrocystic breast disease do not have an increased cancer risk. Breasts are often painful and contain "bumps." This pain and "bumps" can extend under the arm, into the rib cage and under your breast. In my case the pain also can extend upward to the collarbone.
Avatar m tn i also have pain where my spleen is and now also find that I have pain on the LRQ of my abdomen roughly 3-4 cm below the rib cage.
Avatar n tn For the past couple of years I've had this aching, almost menstrual-cramp like pain on my left side, radiating from my leg/hip to below my rib cage and to my whole back (especially behind my shoulder blades). Recently this pain got a whole lot more localized (under my rib cage) and was accompanied by changes in stool as well as hard, sharp attacks of pain/nausea. It gets a whole lot worse with alcohol consumption or fatty foods, but is inconsistent.
Avatar n tn Shooting, constant and frequent pain either right above my belly button, on the lower right side of my pelvis or in between the bottom of my rib cage. It feels like there is a lump on the right side of my pelvis and the spot in between in rib cage is tender to touch. They both hurt really bad after I eat. My joints, especially my hips and knees ache no matter the weather. Either I am hot, cold or clamy. I rarely feel comfortable temperature wise.
245285 tn?1220501946 1. Golfball sized lump just behind and above my belly button and a smaller lump which hangs out over my belly button. 2. Stomach is flat in the morning (other than belly button). After a couple of hours, a ridge appears under my ribs, as if the bottom part of my ribs were opening. Looks almost like I am pregnant but only the top part of my stomach 3.

92903 tn?1309908311 Over the past week or so I've had moderate fluid retention in feet and ankles, and also a full and bloated pressurized feeling behind the rib cage. A moderate meal produces the stuffed feeling of a Thankgiving dinner. I should be getting more labs done soon, but the recent ones I have show low ast/alt, and good billirubin. Albumin has always been perfect, but hasn't been tested in a while.
