If they cause symptoms or change colors, bleed, bruise or hurt, then see your doctor. ...Read more

I can feel a hard painless lump in my solar plexus exactly below the middle of my chest. Any idea what it could be and should I be concerned? Thanks.

I can feel a hard painless lump in my solar plexus exactly below the middle of my chest. Any idea what it could be and should I be concerned? Thanks.

Xyphoid process?: I wonder if you are feeling the tip of your sternum (breastbone). It actually consists of three parts - and the lowest part (the xyphoid process) is a triangular shaped bone that feels quite firm and may be where you describe. Needless to say, ask your doctor if you are concerned. But why not google up "xyphoid process" and see if a picture matches your description. Good luck. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

Hard to tell like th: It is difficult to know where your lump is. You should get yourself examined either by a family member (to confirm that there is a lump present, for sure) or better go see a doctor for a medical check up. It is only with physical examination done by a doctor that we can check you for this problem. CT scan of the abdomen is a good test if there is sufficient reason/suspicion of a lump in your belly ...Read more

I have a hard non painful lump about 2cm on my solar plexus which has doubled in size in the past 3 weeks could you please tell me some causes please?

See your PCP: For this one, you will need to see your pcp or a dermatologist. This could be one of many things, benign or malignant. However, it is likely to be a cyst if it is growing that fast and not painful. Have your pcp check it out. It is better to be safe on this. ...Read more

What this lump right under my sternum /solar plexus and above my abdomen?

? Xiphisterum: There a process at the bottom of the sternum, called xiphisterum that you may be what you are feeling. Beyond that it would need a physical examination to know the "lump" you are concerned about.

What is the connection between solar plexus and adrenaline?

What is the connection between solar plexus and adrenaline?

No direct connection: The "solar plexus" is a group of nerves located behind the stomach and in front of the aorta. These nerves go to various digestive organs including the pancreas and bowel, but not to the adrenal glands. The adrenal glands are innervated by nerves coming from the thoracic spine. There is therefore no direct connection between the two. ...Read more

My solar plexus nerve feels tight and "hard". Is there a problem here?

Might be a bone!: Where your rib cage meets in front, at the bottom, there's a bone called the xiphoid process that sticks down. In some cases it can move or twist and become painful--or stick out more. Sometimes women notice this after delivering a baby. If your hard spot is lower than this bone, there are other explanations, but you should see your doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more

My solar plexus painful, more when bending body. If this is cancer related pain, which organ of body do I need to be examed? Male, 63

Go see ur family doc: Pain is not usually the first symptom of most cancers. Regardless, if you don't recall an inciting injury or determine how to completely alleviate pain (short of numbing it w/pain relievers), you need to get evaluated. My recommendation is to see your family doc especially if major concern is cancer so that we can do appropriate examination ; testing to uncover cause ; give appropriate treatment. ...Read more
