Breast nodule: The mass is likely in the soft tissue rather than the rib. This may be fibrous breast tissue which can worsen with caffeine intake and can be associated with menstrual cycle. At your age, you should have a baseline mammogram and your physician should discuss any family history of breast disease. Breast MRI may be necessary if all other imaging modalities fail to isolate the area.

Hope for the best: Hopefully this turns out to be a benign finding such a lipoma. However, given its anatomical locations, other things should be evaluated for. The physical exam and bedside ultrasound may hold the answer. Please see your doctor asap to address your concerns.

Need to examine: It is not feasible to know what you may be feeling. It would be prudent to see your doctor, even though the risk of your having breast cancer is very low. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.

Skipped beats: See your practitioner in case you have a weird unusual heart beat problem but, as a rule, your complaint is common. PREMATURE HEART BEATS OR SKIPPED BEATS CAN BE FELT AS A MIDLINE UPPER CHEST PAIN. They are transient and mild but distressing because they don't seem to be reasonably related to anything, However, stress, coffee, cocoa, chocolate, tea or matte can aggravate it.

Could be normal: It is most likely normal breast development that adolescent males get while going through puberty. It usually resolves or you may get the same "lump " in the other breast, before both sides resolve. Cancer of the breast is rare at 16 y. See a doctor to physically exam the lump if it continues to bother you.

Seek care: While these may be harmless fat deposits called lipomas (a benign or non-cancerous type of tumor), there is also breast tissue on the ribs and in the arm pit. If you are feeling new lumps in these areas, you should be examined. Planned parenthood provides free or low-cost gynecologic care. That may be an option for you.
