Bump On CHest

Alright...first off, thanks for the responses in advance.

Im 20 years old, and for two years now, ive noticed a bump sticking out of my skin on my chest. It is to the right (from my pov), of the bottom of the sternum. It feels like where the ribcage splits there, the right side is raised up still, while the left side goes down into the body like normal. It is not painful at all, but sticks out slightly and really bugs me having to look at it. You can see it alot more when i flex my ab muscles. Its actually not really a bump if you feel it. It feels like the ribcage is just raised up for that area. Its about an inch long.

I havent seen a doctor yet, but i might plan on it. From what i have seen, it hasnt grown at all over the years. I have looked everywhere and found some very disturbing causes including liver cancer, and bone cancer.

Does anyone know what this might be, have any suggestions on things to look at, or any advise. Thank you.
