Dr. Sewa Legha answered:

Today I just found a lump under my left breast on the rib cage. It is very painful and I have another on left back rib which radiates to the front. Are these symptoms of cancer?

Need to see your doc

Cancer
Only a doctor's examination can clarify what it is. Any lump, if it is new and it is real, means something is wrong. It can be an infection(skin) or it could be something else.

Dr. Victor Bonuel answered:

What can I put on or take to get rid of sharp pain? I have a rash with blisters on rib cage under the left breast and it's very painful.

?Shingles

Rash
Go see your DR. This could be shingles/ Herpes Zoster, a viral infection resulting from reactivation of the same virus that causes chickenpox. Take ibuprofen for now if you have no allergies or you're not taking warfarin/coumadin. Take care!

Dr. Ahmad M Hadied answered:

For 11 days now I have been experiencing extremely painful, stabbing pain which starts on the left rear rib cage and shoots toward my spine.

Some possiblities

Shingles
Thoracic disc herniation could cause that. May be we are getting the shingles in the back area. Some time we have to think about some problem in the chest area. Go and check it out.

Dr. Richard Ferro answered:

Please help! I'm having painful hard lump below my rib cage on the left?

Painful hard lump

Pain
Dear Riana, The possible causes of a 'painful hard lump' includes everything from an abcess (a boil) to sebaceous cyst to hematoma, and even benign lipomas, which can sometimes become uncomfortable. Fortunately for you, most physicians, including your PCP, will typically be able to quickly tell you what it is, and help treat you - if any treatment is actually necessary. So go to your PCP asap.

Dr. William Duggan answered:

Left rib cage swollen and painful, clean xray, ultrasound, and ct. What to do now?

Musculoskeletal

Computed_tomography
Rib cage pain can be due to problems in any of the building blocks of that structure. Negative imaging of the bony elements is reassuring however a good clinical exam performed correctly should help to further narrow down a possible cause. If this is a nerve or muscle issue further imaging may not be helpful although your doc may consider an MRI or bone scan. A trial of therapy may be indicated

I've found a lump on my left rib cage that moves about and isn't painful should I be worried ?

Probably not

Pain
It's probably a little lump called a lipoma. That's a harmless collection of fatty tissue that for some unclear reason has decided to glomm together there. I've seen some as big as your fist. But, let a doctor take a look at it and examine it before you write it off as nothing to worry about.
