Dull pain under left breast near rib cage, sore lump, mass of swollen tissue. History of lumps in breasts. Treatment?

i have an ache and dull pain under my left breast by my rib cage. I felt a sore lump in that area and a mass of what feels like swollen tissue . I do monthly exams. This is the first sore lump that I have ever felt. I had a physical in February. My breasts have always been lumpy because I drink a lot of caffeine. I m calling my doctor first thing Monday morning.

the possible causes for your symptoms are,
fibroma of the breast which is a benign condition,
the other possibility is some bony mass arising fro rib cage,
you don't worry these are possibilities only,
after getting examined by your doctor and by taking X-ray chest you can find out the actual cause and treatment can be taken accordingly.
take care.
