Lump in rib cage, soft, painful heart. Worry?

I am 15 , i have a lump on the bottom of my rib cage , it is soft , and when i push down on it, it is not painful or anything , it is just there. I also have sharp pains on my right side , it feels like the pain is coming from my heart, it happens randomly, when it happens it could shoot out a pain multiple times then a few seconds later it stops, this had been happening for a few months now and i am very worried about this.

Cardiologist 's  Response
Localized, superficial pain that is reproducible is rarely caused by heart problems, particularly if it lasts seconds like in your case. However, my advise is that any lump should be examined by a provider to ensure that the physical examination findings are completely benign.
Hope that helps
