Lump In Solar Plexus
Simple vs serious: Our bodies always have things that grow and change. Skin, fat, muscle, lymph nodes, bones, can change shape, get larger, more prominent due to many factors. The vast majority are not cancer but simply unusual growths like fatty tumors, cysts, skin tags, moles, etc. Most cause no symptoms and can be watched. If they cause symptoms or change colors, bleed, bruise or hurt, then see your doctor. ...Read more
Different options: The armpit has a lot of things in it both in the skin and below it. Sweat glands, hair follicles and skin cysts as well as lymph nodes, fatty tissue, hernias and other things. Is the lump growing, inflamed, painful, painless, draining, recurrent or constant, moveable or fixed...? Each of these (and many more) will provide your doc the answers as to what it is and what needs to be done. ...Read more

Xiphoid process: If this is hard and sometimes painful to push on, it is likely the tip of your breast bone. It sometimes pokes up a bit. If it feels more like it is in the superficial skin it is a cyst of some sort. ...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.
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
I noticed a smal hard lump in my solar plexus a while ago, today I felt like I had indigestion and noticed that it is bigger. Could it b cancer?
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
Hi I have recently discovered quite a big lump exactly where my solar plexus is.It certainly isn't bone.Can you help?
Maybe: Check out google images and see if the lump is consistent with xyphoid process, which should be there. If not, then a bit more info about the nature of the lump (tone, degree of tenderness, etc) would be needed to further comment. ...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
