found a lump on my side

I found a strange lump on my left side towards the outside of my back, just underneath my ribcage. It is underneath the skin and is very firm. Are there any lymph nodes that are located in this area and is this something i should get checked out? Any advice is welcome.

The human body contains 600 lymph nodes. There certainly could be lymph nodes there. But there is also a major artery that could be swelling for some reason. Show this to your doctor!
