Hard Tender Lump Under Left Rib Cage

my 26 y/o daughter just showed me a larger than marble sized rounded, hard lumb under her left rib cage that is palpable and is tender to touch and causes some pain. What can cause this and should this be addressed urgently? She was laid off from work and currently does not have insurance.Please respond as soon as possible. This is causing much concern.Thank you.


Hi concerned

Well...you have landed on the depression site here. I wish I could tell you something other than...yes she should see a doctor immediately. Maybe take her to an urgi-care or emergency room. I am not a doctor so I can give no real advice on this except she should be seen.

I hope she will be all right.
