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.

I have a painful lump on my left rib cage. I had two ultrasounds and three x-rays in the past two years and they found nothing. What is this?

Could be....

This lump might need evaluated by more advanced imaging, such as an MRI or CT scan. There may be some soft tissue pathology or even a nondisplaced rib nonunion that is being missed by these imaging modalities.

I have three medium size lumps on rib cage for six months painful when you touch them pain in stomach headachea fatigue my doc said herpes but i have?

Herpes simplex

Tactile
This does not sound like herpes, but without seeing the lesions it is impossible to diagnose. My advice would be to see another doctor and get a second opinion ASAP. Good luck.

Stomach pain 2 inches below right rib cage and 2 inches to the right of my belly button. I also have bloating and gas. There are two hard lumps underneath the skin which are painful.

Gallbladder or ulcer

Without knowing more, it is difficult to say what the cause is, however it can be related to your gallbladder (gallstones) or stomach (ulcer disease) especially if you are taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS like Motrin or Ibuprofen). You should contact your PCP to gather more information and possibly run some tests like an ultrasound. If you have fever/severe pain, go to ER.

Please get checked

by your doc. A lump can be serious and when treated properly can lower your anxiety. Ambiguity generates anxiety. Peace and good health.

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.

My daughter recently discovered a hard lump below her rib cage. Doesn't seem attached to the skin and not painful but uncomfortable when bending?

See her doctor

Pain
It's hard to say what this could be without seeing it. She should see her doctor so they can find out what is causing the lump-whether it is outside of the abdomen or inside the abdomen,
