some time ago I noticed a lump on my ribcage under my left breast. Over time I have noticed another one or two, I ignored these because a friend said that they were most likley to be just fatty tissue as I need to lose weight, but more recently I have discoverd a lump under my arm and my ribcage is now sore to the touch I am not too worried as I feel well and wondered if this could possibly be just torn cartlidge and if so what the treatment for this would be.

  • Can't really say for sure, but If I were you I would definitely go to a doctor. You really need to rule out cancer and find out what this is. Don't mean to sound so blunt, but you really need to get this checked. The sooner the better. Good luck. Please keep us posted

  • I have the exact same problem... Just a few days ago I noticed a lump on my ribcage and it was a little tender and tonight I noticed I have multiple lumps all over both ribcages... I have no idea what this is but I'm going to the doctor this week about it.
