    sternum / rib hard lump help please


    i am 23 and have had a hard lump on my sternum going on to my right ribs. It has grown from being very small to now quite large but a funny shape.

    It does not move, feels like bone but is tender if touched to hard sometimes. doctors have looked at it and dont really seem to bothered as its not breast tissue.

    i have an xray and nothing came up. im feeling very anxious about this and my doctor told me last time, that all doctors do is guess.....!!!

    i have said to her that well youve only guessed one possibility with a n xray, what else could it be? she does not care....

    i dont know wether i am being over concered.. but i would like an opion, she kept asking me well what do you think it is! i said i dont know im not a doctor...

    please help

    I just found a similar lump on my sternum. I saw my doctor today and had an X-ray and waiting for results. Did you ever find out what yours was? Please let me know!

    I've got a lump on the top part of my left ribs. I've had it since I was a kid but a few years ago I went for an ultra sound scan and the dr said the top parts of my ribs hasn't grown like the rest and they have fused together and it was nothing to worry about. He checked the other side and the lump was smaller but still there.

    Ask your dr for an ultra sound scan as it can pick more up then an X-ray.
