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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I don't think the itchy skin is related. There are various other growths/tumors that can present like this. I recommend having it evaluated by a dermatologist to determine if these should be excised. ...Read more
