Have lump under rib, not attached. Lymph nodes?

I have a tiny lump underneath my lower left rib. It doesn't hurt or anything but it is not connected to the rib (I can move it around between two fingers). There may be a smaller one in the similar area below the lower right rib. Are there lymph nodes in those areas? The lump on the left side is smaller than a grape but larger than a pea if that makes any sense.
