I have a lump that comes and goes under my left breast but right on the rib cage. There's a lot of pressure and makes it hard to move. What is it?

Exam if persists: Not able to tell by description what a lump under left breast but right on the ribcage might be.

Lump in between the xyphoid process and my rib cage ...Is this breast cancer?

Nobody knows: No one can tell you for sure without a biopsy. First, it would be important to know how big the lump is, how long it has been there, and whether it has changed in size or not over time.
