A rib bump can be a type of scoliosis. I am not sure if I spelled that right or not. Scoliosis is the curve to the spine. The reason I know is because they done a routine scoliosis screening at my sons school and found the rib bump. I am having to make an appointment with an orthopidec (Bone doctor) I hope this helps
My daughter, 11, has a lump off the center of her rib cage under her right breast area. Definitely rib bones! She doesn't complain of chest pains or anything, but she is beginning to feel self conscience of this large protrusion. Doctor, 2 years ago, said it's nothing to worry about. What can it be, what can we do?
I am 37 , dont smoke, fit and healthy. I have grown a tennis ball size lump on my rib cage since this march. doctors are clueless had x- ray and u-scan which shows nothing, having a ct this friday--- you cant help but worry about the c word, however the web sites do imply that a sarcoma in unusual in children--good luck buddy and keep on their backs until you get a definate diagnossis.
