Causes Of Swollen Right Rib
costochondritis: Costochondritis is an inflammation of the junctions where the upper ribs join with the cartilage that holds them to the breastbone, or sternum. The condition causes localized chest pain that you can reproduce by pushing on the cartilage in the front of your ribcage. Costochondritis is a relatively harmless condition and usually goes away without treatment. The cause is usually unknown.
Swollen Ribs: The ribs, themselves, are probably not swollen, but the cartilage between the ribs and intercostal muscles might be swollen. This can happen from exercise, but there are inflammatory problems, like costochondritis, that might be causing your rib pain. Try a strong dose of anti-inflammatory medication, like a Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack from your doctor, or 600mg of Ibuprofen 3 times per day for a week.

Hi my Girlfriends left bottom part of her rib cage is swollen and she complains of pain. She has gal bladder problems I think she might have gal stones could this be the cause? And what Medication can we use temporarily for gal stones
Pain on the left rib: Region is likely not related to the gall bladder b/c the gall bladder is located underneath the lower Rt. Rib cage. Gall stones are very common and inflammation of the gall bladder can be aggravated by eating fatty foods. Avoiding fatty foods helps to reduce the frequency of gall bladder attacks. However, if the pain is on her left side, it is not likely gall bladder. If it persists, see doc.See 4 more doctor answers
Can gallstones cause abdomen tenderness, & rib to feel swollen & feel bruised & stabbing pain? Also can you feel it swollen?
It may: Gall stones can possibly block the duct and cause pain which can be referred to the rib area, and swelling of the abdominal area in the mid-epigastric and the right upper quadrant. Get eval if you have these symptoms with known gall stones. Best wishes.
It depends on size: Unless these nodes are large (more than 2cm) you do not need to worry. But many diseases affect lymph nodes. Some of the considerations include infections (tb, sarcoid, fungal infections), lymph gland cancers like lymphomas or cancer spread from the lungs or elsewhere in the body. But I would not worry unless they are large enough as the radiologists often over read them anytime they are >0.5cm.

Check thyroid tests: Anxiety may cause chest pain, however if thyroid level is high, it also may give similar symptoms. Absence of neck pain doesn't rule out thyroid concerns. Evaluating thyroid further may be helpful. Assuming anxiety is the only issue is not wise without additional information.See 2 more doctor answers

Lung tumor: Chest or mediastinal lymph nodes associated with a lesion in the lung most often represent metastasis from a lung primary. This can further be defined by mediastinoscopy and lymph node biopsy or if in the proper position, thoracoscopy removing the lung nodule. A PET/CAT before any procedure will tell whether the nodes are malignant as whether the lung lesion is malignant.
