In Reply to: Weird sensation in left rib cage area! posted by Jane on November 20, 2000 at 13:26:07:
: I have been to the Dr about this pain in left rib cage in the lower lung area. They did exrays of lung that came out clear. They exrayed my rib cage and said nothing was wrong. When I bend over or get out of bed the pain in this area is very evident. Has anyone else had these symptons? I feel like it is a growth that is rubbing against my rib cage. I'm scared of the big C word. Can anyone enlighten me? Thanks Jane
HI Jane-I had a growth on my rib for 2 years. the doc did xrays and they were resulted as normal. I finally asked to see a surgeon and he did an MRI. Guess what? It was a malignant chondrosarcoma. Get another opinion. I am now minus 3 ribs and part of my diphram.
