Lump near rib cage

Hi,

Im a 26 year old male and about 4-5 months ago I started to feel a very slight dull ache near the bottom right of my rib cage. After having a feel, I eventually felt a lump, although I cant actually feel the lump with my fingers, I can sort of move it over my rib cage, which is how I know it is there

At around the time I had the ache, I was on a job where I had to pull myself into a loft, and as I did, it felt like my stomach had turned inside out and lasted for a few seconds.

Im quite concerned about this lump, and have been to the doctor who said it could be a small hernia (although he couldnt feel anything). I now have a scan booked for next month

Im quite worried as I have lost 2 of my friends to cancer when they were quite young. Does this sound like a hernia or something more serious?

Thanks

Re: Lump near rib cage

It is probably a small tear in a muscle. They can be painfull & difficult to heal. Try not to cough or sneeze with a torn stomach muscle If this is a problem take Nyquill liquid.

Would that cause a lump though, and it would last for this long (4-5 months)?
