Lymph glands: Generalized enlargement of lymph nodes are seen in infectious mononucleosis, malignant blood dyscrasias and other infections. I'm not sure that they would be found on the rib cage itself or on the shin bone. I recommend an evaluation by a hematologist or an infectious disease specialist. A lymph node biopsy as well as other tests may be advised by the specialist. ...Read more

Im 21 yr old guy  and I've had a lump under my nipple for 3 years no pain no itch no symptoms should I be worried?

Probably not, but...: A lump or bump that has not changed in 3 years, is likely not serious. Show your doc, though, to be sure. Also, your doc can document size and so be able to compare what it looks like on follow-up visits, to see if there's a change. If you notice a change in size, or shape, or it starts to hurt, etc. get seen quickly. Could be a benign cyst, or a lipoma, or scar tissue, etc. ...Read more

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
