Avatar n tn I have a lump right at/under my sternum. But my story is a bit different. This lump causes me pain 24 hours a day..extreme pain. It all started when one night I have bad pain for 6 hours where every organ in my body felt like it was going to explode. When that subsided I was left with severe pain on the right under my breast at the base of my ribs. After a lot of normal scans and tests the HIDA scan showed my gallbladder working at 3%.

Avatar n tn Is this something we should act on. He seems to have a small lump under his sternum but really small and seems to be muscular. Seems normal to me but not sure. He does not wince in pain when touched in the area. He just complains his belly hurts. He has not been having diarhea either. What do you make of this.
Avatar f tn I found a marble sized hard immovable lump (under the skin) between my breasts a few days ago. Does anyone know what this could be? I have read several things on the internet saying things like, clogged sweat gland, cysts, boils, etc....but this is under the skin, it does not look like a pimple, it isn't red and doesnt even look like it could be popped. Could it be breast cancer if it is not actually on either one of my breasts?

1548053 tn?1294827132 Hi, I am a 52 year od female. On 12/11 I noticed a lump about the size of a tennis ball in the middle of my chest. It is located approximately 2" above my cleavage on my sternum. It is hard and does not move, but it is not painful. There is also a small red spot about a 1/4" in diameter just under it that appeared first. I don't know if it is somehow related to the lump. Please advise. Thank you for your time.
Avatar n tn woke up this morning with bad pain under center sternum, like in very top of stomach. Felt where pain was coming from and discovered a lump at bottom of sternum just slightly off center. 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?
Avatar f tn I have a lump just below my sternum that has been there for years. In my case it is a cyst. When I first noticed it, it was as large as it is now. There is no pain. That is not to say that you have a cyst - but it is possible.

Avatar m tn I strained my abdomen and groin by doing too many sit ups last year. For various reasons, over exertion seemed like a good idea at the time. How wrong i was. It feels like there is a lump in my belly, below my sternum, this lump is tender to touch, and it gives me the sensation of a "hole" in my chest. There is also a "lump" in my groin, on both sides. Ive also been having warm sensations All over my body, from head to toe.
Avatar m tn This is a lump that moves when I push on it and when I lay down, it looks like a bump under my skin. It is also a little painful. Any idea of what this could be?

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 Had a lump for about a year which has got bigger over this time, it is situated at the top of my stomach, in the centre, just about where the CENTRE of my rib cage ends. I have been to a doctor who gave me a two minute examination and was told it was my bone?? I'm not sure as it can be sore and as I've said, it seems to be getting bigger. It is a solid lump and is under the skin. I have also found that when I have rubbed it, well, it makes me burp.
Avatar m tn Well I have a lump just below my sternum and it has been there for almost 30 years. It is a lipoma (a fatty cyst). I seem to get them all over. If you lump were cancerous it would not be sitting there so benignly for 15 years.
Avatar n tn I have had extreme pain under my ribs on the right side extending from the lower ribs almost to my sternum. I also have a protrusion (lump) on the right which is close to my sternum & quite painful. When lying down for examination my right quadrant is very very tender. I have had the following with negative results: endoscopy, CT with contrast & barium.
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.
