Sore breast lump rib

Common Questions and Answers about Sore breast lump rib


Avatar n tn I have a large lump on my rib that is right below my left breast. It is not in my breast but below my breast.I had a tumor removed a year ago in my right breast, which was benign, but this is strange. It is very large and very distinctive. Can you have a tumor on your rib and not in your breast that might be Breast cancer and what do you think it can be. It just keeps getting bigger and bigger.
Avatar n tn I posted down several posts ago about a lump about 2 inches below my breast over the rib area that has been there for around 7 years. It is about the size of a dime until it got irritated/infected and swelled up to about the size of quarter. It had a red ring around it and a few days ago I noticed it was forming a head on the side of it. So naturally I push it nad alot of fluid came out and then lumps of cottage cheese material came out.
Avatar f tn I have just found a lump under my left breast in the rib area. The lump is the size of a small egg. I know it sounds as though I should have noticed it already, but I don't think it has been there. It is not sore or tender at all. Over the past year I have had some stomach problems that are new to me, the most unusual being a gnawing sensation in the upper stomach. I am 58 years old and otherwise in perfect health. I can't believe there are so many posts with the same problem.
722475 tn?1239135370 It is fairly large I guess and it doesn't really hurt more than normal, maybe some, but the lump, while it is still part of my breast area, extends down farther on my chest so that if I raise my arms I can see it. I've checked the other one out and found nothing too similar in that area, but I did also notice more lumps that are probably just cysts or a fibro-whatevers because I think my period is due sometime soon.
Avatar f tn about a week ago i noticed a pain in the right side of my ribs below the breast. pressing on the area of the pain does not hurt but pressing over to the left of that rib worsens the pain. laying flat is very painful, i have slept propped up for the last 2 nights. along with the pain is a weird bubbly feeling in that area. the pain is not constant. i can not work out what causes it to hurt other than laying down.
Avatar f tn Hope you are doing well! I had a rib resection in May, 2012 due to mastastasized breast cancer, however, just a 4" portion of the rib was removed. The doctor placed a piece mesh over the area of the removed rib & 'cemented' it in place. I am not experiencing any real pain, but I do have shortness of breath all the time. When I take a deep breath, yawn, sneeze, cough, etc. I feel like I have a tight band across my chest and it is very uncomfortable.
Avatar m tn Hi, I'm 18, In my right breast I have a lump less than a inch wide that i noticed in the last few weeks. When I told my mom she said it was nothing to worry about "its just hormones," her mind changed when she felt the lump.. The lump hurts, like a sore throb, It hasn't grown or shrunk... Also from the mid rib cage to my right sholder and down to the bottom of my rib cage is a little uncomfortable, this is the same side as the breast lump, ( It feels like pressure, or numbness.
Avatar f tn Was told it was a cysts and breast cancer doesnt hurt...BS... I had this pain without a lump...then with a lump...was told it was hormonal changes...perimenopause all sorts of answers. But not the correct one. Insist on a MRI....NOW... dont wait...
Avatar m tn The nipples hruts when i touch it, almost like it's sore. I thought it would go away but Sometimes the rib pain was unbearable and i was growing concerned about the nipple lump. I went to urgent care in my town, they took some x-rays and i went for an ultrasound. Both showed nothing. The doctor there gave me a prescription for 800mg ibpreoufen. I'm getting more and more worried about this lump. I'm starting to worry about cancer.
Avatar n tn Should I be worried, I am suppose to go back to the doctor again in 3 mos for a follow up, should I wait that long because I am really sore in my rib cage rt under my breast. Please give me some advice.
Avatar n tn I also have this right side pain problem that most of you are talking about in your posts. Mine is situated behind the rib cage and often the bottom ribs feel sore. The pain radiates to the back and sometimes feels like it generates heat in the back. Sometimes the center of the pain feels a little bit lower -- at about the mid-abdomen on the right side. It can be both dull or sharp. Sometimes I even feel pain much lower, just above the hip.
341759 tn?1195798304 I sometimes feel as if my breast tissues are swelling up @ times, or maybe the muscles? Tonight I found a lump in my breast. It kind of feels like it is connected to the rib cage. Certain movements with my arm can make the lump feel more there & other movements with my arm can make it go away. I don't feel like I have breast cancer, since I feel like it is possibly a tissue &/or muscle problem.
Avatar m tn I also have a pea sized lump on my rib (left rib cage) with the same popping feeling when I lean over. I've been reading around online and it sounds like it could be something called a lipoma. I have no idea what the popping feeling/movement is though. I ahven't been to a doctor about it...yet. SOmetimes I get a dull or sharp pain there after I eat as well. You too?
Avatar n tn I am 29 and Three weeks ago I discovered a small(pea to marble size)lump about 4 inches below my right armpit on the rib cage to the side of my breast it is not located in the breast tissue. It's possible the lump has always been there and I have never noticed. It has increased in size minimally and several other small lumps have developed around the area in the last few weeks-one directly below the original and the others above.
Avatar n tn i have a lump in my right rib just by my breast bone which is sore and also makes my side and back and arm sore what could it be
Avatar n tn A few days ago I noticed a sore, reddish swollen lump on my left inner thigh, right along my bikini line. It has since gotten larger (about the size of a nickel, and more elongated now). It only feels sore if I press on it or rub against it. It seems like a soft lump that moves around with the skin. Last night I applied a warm washcloth to it for about 30 minutes, which made it feel better. Could this be a swollen lymph node, or maybe an ingrown hair?
Avatar n tn Two days pryor my right side felt sore. Then later I noticed this lump. I can actually see a small protrusion when I arch my back on the front lower part of my ribcage. It feels soft & moves a little. Could that be a swollen lymph node? I did have a sore throat. I don't remember lifting anything heavy. I also have been diagnosed with IBS, (extremely constipated), I am taking zelnorm for a year now. Should I be overly concerned or wait to see if it goes away?
Avatar f tn I too have the rib cage tightness with a small lump like just under the zyphoid. I noticed it more prominent after yawning one night holding in the breath and feeling as if something herniated. I believe its a herniated diaphragm. Cause it just didn't hurt as bad until I quit taking muscle relaxes and ill know more after I visit Henry Ford hospital Detroit to heck on my brain tumor in June of 2012.... FYI. No relation to chest band tightness....ruled out.hope this helps...chad v.
494669 tn?1275366075 The most common sign of breast cancer is a lump or thickening in the breast. Other potential signs of breast cancer include: a spontaneous clear or bloody discharge from the nipple, retraction or indentation of your nipple, a change in the size or contours of the breast, flattening or indentation of the skin over the breast or redness or pitting of the skin over your breast.

Avatar n tn Hi there. Breast changes occur in accordance to changes in a female's hormone levels that rise and fall throughout her menstrual cycle. These changes can be in the form of swelling, lumping and soreness. this is usually maximal just before the onset or during the first few days of menses. This lump that you have can be due to this normal cycling and is called fibrocystic breast changes, or fibroadenoma which are benign conditions.
Avatar n tn Nothing came out of this as nothing was found in the xray. The pain continues and under my arm is ususally always swolen and sore. There were no breast lump concerns at my appointment last year and I continue to do self exams and find nothing. Do any of you have any opinions of what this could be? It worries me and is painful. Should I be consulting another doctor for a second opinion?
Avatar f tn I have had a pretty bad pain in my left breast, slong the outside and the bottom along my ribs for 3 months now. Prior to this, I had bronchitis for a while. My cough finally subsided about 2 weeks ago, but the pain is worse. It goes to my back at times, and my left side has now noticably larger then my right.
Avatar n tn I have logged on for the first time Noticed a number of comments re problems with left armpit(lump) and pain in left breast. I have had the same problem for about two years. Of recent weeks the breast pain has increased. Last week I was sent for an Ultra Sound, await the results. Over the years I have surgery for the removal of benign lumps and in 1982 had a reduction. With all of these adhesions it was difficult to do a self examination so had regular mamograms.All showed no problems.
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 found this lump..upper left breast. It was very sore and seem to get larger. I went to my OB and he could hardly look at me in the face and said lets hope it is a cyst. Had a mammogram and ultrasound and nothing showed up. The ultrasound lady could feel it very plainly and would place the tool on there...nothing. A few days later I started my menstrual. The lump seem to decrease in size and soreness.
Avatar f tn But I did check breast examination myself.. Only swollen lump (muscle) under armpit and no lumps around my breasts, just sore breast. Also I got tiny swollen on right side rib and tiny lump behind my left ear.. I didnt notice before.. unitl 2 days ago!! I find my rib very uncomfortable and sore.. everyday I checked my temp its always around at 38c. So I guess its must be virus...The doctor said if the lump still there, come back in few weeks times.. I hope its only virus..
Avatar f tn I just saw my Gynecologist on Thursday in regards of a lump on my left lower Brest. The lump feels right on the breast bone or rib bone I don't know how it's called. It's right where the underwire of the bra goes. I felt it 2 weeks ago while doing my self breast exam. Gyno believes it might be a cyst and he thinks it is not cancer because of my age 25 yrs and it's round and not tender. He says cancer lumps are not round they are different shapes and are firm.
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 Basically, for about 24 - 48 hours, an area of skin (generally from the size of a softball to basketball) will become extremely tender and sore to the touch ... almost as if it were bruised significantly. It is so tender that clothes brushing against it is painful. The problem is, there is no visual evidence of it. I went to the doctor and felt as though he was insinuating that I was making up the symptoms because he could not see anything. Very, very frustrating.
