I have noticed a lump on the lower right side of my rib. Just below the rib cage. It can be painful when pressed and is sometimes (not always) accompanied by mild pain (which is very tolerable). Does anyone know what this might be?
Lumps and bumps are notoriously difficult to diagnose online, so I'd recommend that you talk to your doctor about it as soon as you can. It may be a harmless fatty lump (benign lipoma) or a bone spur. Typically tumors don't hurt, but any time you have a question about a lump it's best to have it checked by a doctor.

I hve a lump in the same spot. I had a CT scan w/barium about 5 years ago, and the doctor didn't see anything. He said my liver might be enlarged, or I might have a fatty tumor there. It has gotten slightly worse over the years, but not too bad. Lately it has started to ache from time to time. I am going to get it checked again, but I'm a college student and those feaking doctors charge an arm and a leg. Let me know what you find out..... I've been worried about it lately but I can't afford a chekcup.
