Lump sternum

Common Questions and Answers about Lump sternum


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. Since then, which has been almost 7 years ago, every single little thing that goes wrong with me I think I am dieing.
2151671 tn?1336508555 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 n tn I recently felt what feels like a lump under my sternum, it feels like its connected to my sternum and only way i even relized he was there was because i was feeling around my stomach area one day. It really doesnt bother me but lately ive been noticing it more and more. I dunno if its all in my head just because i found it. Im just wondering if I should go see a doctor, ive read of the xiphoid process and im not sure if thats what it is.
Avatar n tn I have lump too. It is size of a chestnut. When I did yoga, leing on my stomach and lift my upperbody, I felt pain and like something wants to come out from under the sternum. My doctor advised me, not to lie down on my stomach!!!!This was in june. This week I was dignosed with liver hemangioma and hepatoma.

Avatar m tn Hey Guys, For about 5 months I have had a Lump below my sternum seems to be exactly where the Xiphoid process is. Sometimes when I bend down or bend over it will feel out of place. Never really worries me and does not seem to be getting bigger, and does not hurt when touched. If i stick my chest out you can see it. Can this cause me any problems, is it something I should worry about? When i lie down on my side the lump moves more to the side that I lay on, is that normal?
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 f tn It looks like a small pimple now, but under it I can feel a rock hard pea sized immovable lump on my sternum. Is this cause for concern?
Avatar f tn I noticed this lump about 6 mos. ago. It is on the sternum and more to the left of the sternum and it is about the size of a 1/2 dollar, this lump does not move and is not painful. I for about a year now have not felt well. I have tachycardia on a daily basisand fatigue, and about every 3 weeks I experience extreme hunger feeling, body feels shakey and hot like I could pass out I usually sit down with a fan or air conditioner on high on me.
Avatar n tn I do have a lump in my sturnum, left side, it hurts when I push on it. I have a wicked pounding heartbeat, often uneven. I feel my heart beat in my whole body all the time.
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 n tn He noticed a knot that developed in his chest directly under his sternum bone.The lump is very sore and pertrudes out when he arches his back it is approx. the size of a 1/2 inch round ball.What can it possibly be to appear so sudden?He is also a heavy smoker.
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?
Avatar n tn very successful, returned to part time work in 6 weeks. Four months ago I noticed a small lump on my sternum, directly on the scar. My local Dr. said to we would have to wait and see what happened. It came to a head and during the night it ruptured and drained. Since then I have had a CT Scan-normal, culture-negative, a whole blood count- all three parts very normal, and a WB Induim san-normal. The draining has just about stopped, normally a drop or two during the night.
976897 tn?1379171202 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.
Avatar m tn For the past few months I have noticed a lump just below my ribs at the very bottom of my sternum. It is about the size of a grape. It is not soft and does not move at all. Seems to be attached to the bone. No pain when I touch or try to move it. It does seem to swell slightly when undergoing stress. I am a veteran and have VA health care. I do not have an appointment to see my Dr' yet, I just wanted to see if anyone out there has experience with these symptoms.
Avatar m tn My 70 year old mother has a bony painless lump on her upper sternum between her breast. The lump doesnt move and is about the size of a tennis ball. It grew about 3 months ago and we think it is still growing.. My mother is scared of needles, biopsy and doctors..What do you think it is?
Avatar n tn Also, this morning he announced to me that he has recently felt a lump below hi sternum. I felt it and it was a marble-sized lump that was hard and about half an inch below his sternum. His doctor is currently out of town and I am at a loss as to how to proceed. I have been reading online and some people reported that this "lump" is actually just their xiphoid process and that they just started to feel it now that they have lost weight.
Avatar n tn Hello and hope you are doing well. The 'lump' could be a sebaceous cyst, a lipoma, or lymph nodes. They could also be herpes infections, cysts, yeast infections and infected hair follicles. If there is accompanying swelling, redness, discharge and fever it is most probably an infection. He may need to consult your primary care physician who will examine you and initiate appropriate therapy. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
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.
Avatar f tn I have a hard lump on my sternum. I need a ct scan, ultra sound said non vascular. Has anyone had this?
