I am 20 years old and female. I recently found a palpable lump in between the bottom rib and the once above it on my left side.
It is movable and about 1 inch by 1 inch in size.
Sometimes it is more obvious than others (when i am lying down and stretched out, the lump is much smaller. When i tighten that area it becomes more obvious.
I had an ultrasound on it and the pathologist said it was just a bit of fatty tissue but didnt have the circumcribed margins to be a lipoma.
I have been referred to a specialist to make sure.
The ultrasound didnt show any lump at all, just the fatty tissue.
My question is, is the lump likely to be cancerous? I am worried that the fatty tissue showing on the ultrasound is not the source of the lump.
If it is cancerous, does it have a name? is it common.?
thanks in advance
