Lump on rib Cage

Sore
Such lumps have to diagnosed by doing a clinical examination because the consistency and the margins of the lump felt on palpation itself help to diagnose it. Some possibilities are lipoma , large sebaceous cyst, fibroma etc. The pain in the bump indicates that it may be infected. Please check this out with your GP. Further treatment would depend on the diagnosis.

I have a constant pain at the bottom of my right rib cage that is very very sore i can feel the pain in my back as well.

See a doctor

Pain
Consider getting evaluated by your doctor sooner than later. Pain in that area can be related to gall bladder issues but would need a more thorough evaluation to determine the cause.
