Hello. I am 27 year old male. Healthy and active. I have a lump on the front of my left ribcage toward the bottom. It is bone hard and visible - about the size of a large marble. I thought for a month or two that this was a bone spur from surfing - since i surf alot and this is a point of contact. I also noticed another lump on my cheekbone just in front of the point. This is consistent with lymph node - but it is bone hard and imoveable - slightly smaller than the rib lump. This week I found a third on my collar bone just under my throat also bone hard and immoveable. The ribcage one doesn't seem like a normal location for nodes. But the other two have me concerned.
I made a doc appointment next week for a physical and I will bring it up there. Everything I read online concerns 'swollen' lymph nodes. These almost feel like growths on the bone. any advice
