I've found a soft lump on my back. It's approx 2 inches below and 2 inches across from my armpit. It's on my rib cage. It's also painless.

If it is mobile (meaning you can move it side to side, up and down) and it's been there for a while unchanged, it sounds like a cyst, probably sebacious (oil gland clogged). I would see a doc to confirm it, though, and have peace of mind. ...Read more

Seek care: While these may be harmless fat deposits called lipomas (a benign or non-cancerous type of tumor), there is also breast tissue on the ribs and in the arm pit. If you are feeling new lumps in these areas, you should be examined. Planned parenthood provides free or low-cost gynecologic care. That may be an option for you. ...Read more
