Swelling in lower part of rib cage, abdominal pain. What is it?

Hello SIr, I am a 28 years male. I have swelling under my lower part of rib cage on left side. It is from 4 years now. I never felt any pain before. But I feel discomfort when i bend on left side. I have never felt any pain but some times it pains in left abdomen or under left rib cage for a fraction of seconds. I dont know what it is. One can easily see that left rib cage is swollen nd not in shape as of Right rib cage. Please help me i am bit worried. Is it something serious.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for choosing H.C.M.F.
It appears to be the lipoma, and nothing else. what ever pathology of left upper abdomen like gastritis, pancreatitis, etc will never elicit to the out side. More over it is painless at the same time causing discomfert.
I advise you to consult a surgeon for diagnosis and treatment.You may have to take C.T.scan, besides other routine tests and manual examination for confermation.
Wishing for a quick confermation of the disease and cure.If you have any doubts you can approach me for follow up.
Best regards.
