Please help, my husband has found a lump the size of a golf ball under his left lower rib. He's had this for a couple of days now but only told me about it last night. He said that it wasn't moving but now he says it seems movable. He's very scared and has an appointment with the doctor tomorrow. Could someone please enlighten me into what this could be, if serious, and what to prepare for? Thanks again

  • I also have a lump in the rib, when I touch it, it feels hard and bony...does not move or hurt, but I feel the pressure in the chest of something being there....I also started to feel a burning pain sensation in the muscles in the armpit and left pectoral when I use my arm to lift myself of the bed or twist in a weird direction. Can this be related?any ideas what's going on with us?
