Non specific: Might need more details to be specific. However could be skin condition or immunological condition. Better to see a good dermatologist - may need biopsy of the lump for diagnosis.

Lymph glands: Generalized enlargement of lymph nodes are seen in infectious mononucleosis, malignant blood dyscrasias and other infections. I'm not sure that they would be found on the rib cage itself or on the shin bone. I recommend an evaluation by a hematologist or an infectious disease specialist. A lymph node biopsy as well as other tests may be advised by the specialist.
