Hi I've just noticed a small area that looks swollen below my left breast above the rib cage on the left side! Any ideas what it could be ? Thanks

In brief: Difficult to tell

Based on what you are describing, it is difficult to be exactly sure.
This could be due to inflammation of your soft tissue (fatty tissue or muscle), from an enlarged spleen, etc. The best way to be sure is to have it examined by a doctor. It's advisable to make an appointment. Best wishes.
