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?

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. ...Read moreGet help now ›
Painful left lump on left side of rib cage. It has grown in size. MRI was last test to show something but it was not defined. Been 3 yrs, what is it?
Need more info: If the lump is in the rib itself, did you have trauma in that area?

Probably normal: There is nothing inside your rib cage that can make it "poke out." Anything that you feel must be outside the rib cage or the ribs themselves. ...Read moreGet help now ›
Yesterday, I noticed a slight lump/bulge on my upper left abdomen below my rib cage after dinner. It is not painful. Is this anything to worry about?
Not yet.: I wouldn't worry too much just yet. It could be a harmless cyst or deposit of fat called a lipoma. It's something your doc should check out - not urgently, though. If it's not painful and you have no other symptoms, it could be done within 1-2 weeks. ...Read moreGet help now ›
