Thanks for query,
As lump is below the ribs on right side it is likely that you might have enlarge liver.
If it is superficial it may be costo chondritis or small lipoma.
Consult doctor and get examined.
Ok and bye.

Welcome to HCM,
As suggested by my senior colleague Dr.Ramesh you should get yourself investigated/examined for a lipoma,enlarged liver and epigastric hernia.It is good that you involve your Primary care physician in this in view of your dad's apprehensive mindset.
Take care.
Have a healthy life...
