Bulge on chest with pain

I have a bulge on my sternum just below my breast and in the middle move my chest.  It is about 1 1/2" x 1 1/2".  My doctor said it was just fatty tissue.  I don't agree with him because it hurts if you slightly push on it.  It doesn't feel like there's anything in there like moving around.  The pain is worse when I'm lying down and expecially if I've had spicy food.  When I lye down on my side it feels like my ribs are pushing against each other. (the left side is hitting the right side)  I don't have any kind of acid reflex with this pain.

did your doctor check for hiatal hernia? sometimes the area between the esophagus and the stomach can weaken and the stomach may begin to protrude into the esoph valve. can be painful. usually associated with reflux. hope this is helpful.
