Hard lump in center of chest below my sternum

I just noticed this a few days ago. Not sure how long its been like this but I can only feel it if I poke my chest out, its a hard lump right in center of my chest between my breastbones, feels kind of roundish. Not sure if its my bone or my Xiphoid Process or something else. Anybody have a idea of what this could possibly be?

The lump is right were number 6 is on this diagram

And it doesn't hurt until I press on it and it will hurt for a few mins then stop. So I've stopped pressing on it............

Re: Hard lump in center of chest below my sternum

I don't remember the name my doctor called it but I asked him about the same thing. It is part of the skeletal system and it is supposed to be there.

I hope this helps.
