Avatar f tn since saturday (today mon) first day was severe heartburn with nausea and elephant on chest feeling. Sun started having pains at bottom of sternum at top of stomach. Today had pains at bottom of sternum, with high blood pressure newest reading being 163/116 81 heart rate and pressure like elephant on chest. Along with finding a lump at bottom of sternum right in the middle with little bit of pain and the lump doesn't move. No heartburn today though.
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.

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 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?
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.

Can feel it protrude slightly with fingers but when pressed into skin a little, feels oddly shaped. Pain is more like strong pressure but does not feel like acid reflux at all. Any suggestions?
