Posted on Mon, 25 May 2015
Question: I have a very uncomfortable feeling under my right ribs. Feels like something is stuck or that I have a huge know there. Also have pins and needles there and feels very tight. I also have a lot of rib pain and very tender along ribs. Have just had an x-ray- waiting for results as my rib can feel like it is out too. Very worried it might be a tumour.

Brief Answer:
Tumours are rarely painful

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have studied your case. Chances of a tumour causing so much discomfort is very rare. Most common cause are liver or lung problem. But before I advised you any further I would like to know little detail about illness.
1. Since when you are having this problem?
2. is it more on left side or right side?
3.Are you drink alcohol or smoke?
4. Do you have any medical problem or taking any medicines since long time?
please senD me answers of these questions. I will try my best to help you.
