I Have a small hard immobile bumb under my breast to the left side of my body. Bumb is on my rib cage right on a rib. There is another bumb right below on a rib as well. Only hurts when I breath in deep or hit it a certain way. Been there for a month?

Lipoma?: Small fatty lumps can collect under the skin like that. They tend to not change for years and don’t really hurt unless you mess with them. Watch for redness, discharge, growth or other changes to signify that it could be something else.
