Common Questions and Answers about Lump behind sternum


Avatar n tn stiffness/tension between neck & shoulder area, posterior ribs, left s.i. .
Avatar n tn So when I felt where the pain was, I discoved a fairly large lump at the bottom of my sternum just off center. Kind of FREAKING out here. Do not have health insurance and do not want to go to the doc to hear him say it is nothing to worry about. Could it be an ulcer or something not so worrisome, or should I get it checked. Pain is still there hours into the day but it comes and goes as far as how strong it is. Anyone have any answers or suggestions?

Avatar n tn I have a hard, "jelly bean sized", firm, non-movable lump on left side of my sternum, right between my breasts. I've had no injury to the area, it is not discolored & have had this bump for a couple of years. During a mammogram a couple years ago, a "marker" was placed over this area, however the marker moves with my skin, and since the lump is fixed on my sternum, it doesn't show in a mammography.

Avatar f tn I am so glad I found this website. I too noticed a lump on my lower sternum. Of course, I always think the worst of everything. Yes, I have been diagnosed with anxiety disorder as well. It's something that I cannot get over on my own, even with the mild meds that my RNP put me on i July. I've always been this way but got worse when I was diagnosed with Stage 3 melanoma.
Avatar m tn Hi, I have a hard, boney and painless lump on the left side of my sternum where the adjacent ribs connect.
Avatar f tn If the lump is on the sternum (breast bone), sometimes this is a congenital abnormality that usually they do nothing about. However without an exam and knowing his past medical history, he needs to be seen by a doctor to determine what this lump is to make sure it does not involve something in the abdomen or ribs or other structures. So have him make an appt. with his doctor for further evaluation.
2151671 tn?1336504955 Saw this thread - - just noticed my lump on Sunday morning (May 6) - and for the record I never noticed it before then. I did change my diet and exercise habits drastically when I turned fifty on March 1st and I've dropped a dozen pounds. . I quit eating meat and dairy, sweets and processed sugar and alcohol as well.
Avatar m tn I have a small lump (about the size & shape of a lemon below & to my right of the sternum. I have had a CAT scan & my gastro dr does not know what it is. He does not think it is part of my liver because it does not go up & down when I breath deaply like my liver does. It can be moved around a bit by my or my Dr's fingers. Any guess?

Avatar f tn After many pictures, the radiologist decided that the lump is a lymph node and not anything to worry about. It is way back in my chest behind my breast but close to the sternum. He assured me that it is fine. Thanks for your encouragement and support. I will continue to pray for all of you.
Avatar f tn About 30 min to an hour after drinking hot chocolate, reflux symptoms start--pain behind sternum, feeling of acid in throat. Took 1 Tagamet at 5 p.m.
Avatar n tn During one episode couple years ago - noticed a stiff tubular lump 2 inch long - just below the sternum. Going down vertically from the sternum downwards. Mildly painful. As gerd improved - I felt the stiffnes reside and did not tend to it any further. Recently suffering from mild gerd / indigestion. Notice stiffness tubula right below sternum - 2 inches. Its very stiff. Same as before. Will be going to doctor this week. Please suggest any experience or casuses for this condition.
Avatar f tn Hello I'm 25 years old and I have a small pea sized movable lump to the left of my sternum. The lump is not visible I have to find it. It's been there for a while but I recently have been getting random sharp pains where the lump is. It is also painful when I move it around. My first thought was that it could be costochondritis because I do lift heavy at the gym but I'm not really sure. Any thoughts?
Avatar n tn However, he was unable to keep his dinner down tonight, we think it might be just from his nerves, not knowing what is causing the lump. Could he have just a protruding sternum that we did notice before or could it be a more serious situation?
