Lump on Left Side Rib Cage

Hi, I'm 14 years old and I recently found this lump about 2 inches below my breast on top of my rib cage. Its about 1 inch in size and has a rubbery feel to it, does not hurt at all and I feel perfectly fine. I'm really worried but my friend's mom whose a nurse said it's probably just a lump of fat tissue. Any other ideas for what it might be?

Could be a 3rd breast but more than likely a fibroadenoma or lump of fat.  Both nothing to be concerned about.  

Get it checked out if you are particularly worried.
