i found a lump on my ribs two weeks ago, it was painful to touch, however after 3-4 days it isnt painful anymore
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
it is a hard lump
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
it is located above my ribs but i can only feel it if i bend over in my fat rolls
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
it is a movable one

So it is a bony hard lump right?

Regards

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
it feels like a cyst? i dont to say its hard, more like firm
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
it moves around when i squeeze it

Thanks for the details

It seems like a Lipoma

This is an accumulation of fat cells underneath the skin

It is mobile and usually nothing to worry about

You can have it examined by your GP but I am sure it is nothing serious

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I'm also feeling very fatigued and anxious, but is that typical before the menstrual cycle?

Yes it can happen

I think you should have an examination for this

But it does not look like anything of serious nature

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Regards

thank you

You are welcome
