A week ago I noticed a sore area about 2 inches under my left breast on the rib area and when I touched it it was painful. It felt like a one inch line vertically down the rib. I was not bitten nor had I had any injury so I thought it would just go away on its own. Five days later it was bigger and much more painful. I saw the dr. and she has no idea what it is but suggested an inflamed blood vessel. It is continuing to be more painful each day and now it has a round nodule on the rib. Any ideas what else I can do or what this is? Thanks:confused:
