Abnormal tissue growth in ribs
Hello, My question is are there non cancerous things that cause two breaks and multiple fractures in your lower ribs and abnormal tissue growth? I had night sweats like crazy for  9 months and in the passed two months i notice a lump on my right side. I saw a dr and they took an xray. The dr said it looks like there is abnormal tissue growing which is causing my ribs to break and fracture. So now im getting an MRI today and then seeing a orthopedic surgeon next week, im really scared. What could this be? I just need a few good explanations.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your predicament. But bone tumors can be benign or malignant. Depending upon the echogenicity, the borders and the shadows created a near correct diagnosis can be made with imaging studies. MRI could further help in evaluation. But a biopsy facilitates a histologic study of cells, which gives you a definite diagnosis.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
