Does this sound like hernia symptoms?under my left rib cage at night it feels like something is sliding around and a lump is there also.

Could be: It could be a hernia. If the lump is there all the time then it may be something else. Hernia lumps tend to come out or be more pronounced when there is increased abdominal pressure like when straining to have a bowel movement or when coughing. Have your doctor check it to make sure of the cause of the lump. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

I have 2 lumps, both sides of my upper chest 2 in. Below the collar bones. No symptoms of cancer, tender to touch. Doc said it was ligament strain. ?

I have 2 lumps, both sides of my upper chest 2 in. Below the collar bones. No symptoms of cancer, tender to touch. Doc said it was ligament strain. ?

Unusual: It is unusual that ligament strain would result in lumps. The other information that i would want to know is if you are male vs female. In females, i would make sure of a recent breast examination, as cysts can occur. The other other possibility are lipomas, which are soft deposits of fat within the skin tissues. Lipomas are very common and usually are not cancerous. ...Read more

I have a painful lump on my back below ribs?

I have a painful lump on my back below ribs?

Fibroma?: Most lumps are painless ... small benign fatty tumors/lipomas or epidermal cysts. The fact that yours is painful is notable. It is likely a dermatofibroma and likely requires no treatment, especially if it hasn't grown over the past year. But I would have it looked at by a dermatologist, just to make sure it doesn't have worrisome features. Very rarely a painful lump can be the beginning of cancer ...Read more
