I'm 17 and I have a gallstone and I recently had a sharp pain near the gallbladder area and I felt a lump below my left breast and on the top of my rib. I've been having the chest pains on my upper left side for a few days and I finally got curious to see if there was any type of swelling, well instead of swelling I drag my finger across a small lump that is in side of me. I am very concerned about this. Cancer runs in both sides of my families. It's really scaring me.
