Thanks for your nice query.

Hard mobile lump between rib cage in a women of 43 years which hurts now and then can be due to variety of reasons like Cyst, Hernia, benign tumor or many more.

Tummy tucks is not going to help you.

For better comment, I would like to know the size of the lump, whether increasing, stationary in size. Also duration of lump noticed, exact site of lump, any other sign & symptom along with occasional hurt, any loss of weight or appetite.

It will be nice on your part if you give more details for good medical advice. Also, please send across a picture of the lump if possible.
