    Hard lump under rib

    I have a hard, immobile lump about golf ball size right below my rib on the right side of my back. It has been there almost 3 years causing discomfort that would come and go but now the pain is almost unbearable and accompanied by shooting pains into my shoulder blade. I was in the ER for another reason last year and asked the doctor to take a look, he touched it with one finger, said "That's a cyst." and walked away. But from what I've read cysts are not hard and immobile. I am without health insurance which is why I have not gone to have it checked out but I think I need to go. I have a family history of lymphoma so my sister who has lymphoma herself is very concerned. Any ideas on what this may be or anyone have dealt with a similar situation?
