Q: Lump under/on my rib cage under breast

The CT scan indicated that it is actually in the cartilage of the rib cage. It is on the left rib - the doctor is going to remove it a couple of weeks. What could it be?

Sorry, I don't know. What did the doctor think? It wouldn't be breast cancer, and we're not really well versed in other kinds of health issues here, since this is a breast cancer site... Sorry I can't be of help to you. But good luck! - PJH
