Do fatty tissues appear in a day?

I am a 31 year old female. I have been experiencing dizziness, lightheadedness, and nausea for the last 4 days. Today I noticed a lump on my lower rib right below my left breast. I am a generally healthy person. I went to the ER thinking the worst...they said it was fatty tissue. How does fatty tissue just show up in a day?

Hi,

It is quite possible that you the fat tissue may have been there but become palpable/notable only recently. Monitor the lump if I feel its growing fast, it's not movable or fixed or if you notice any other lump in your breast tissue you can book an appointment with a specialist and visit them.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
