Felling a lump in left side. Blood test and X-rays came normal. Any kind of tumor?

I have a lump on my back that you can feel when I lay on my side - it s on the left side and I always thought it was a warped rib - I only ever noticed it when I was in Africa - it s the size of a large grape and it very hard and doesn t move - I ve had blood tests and I m fine and also X-rays which come back as nothing. I ve never broken a bone and I m aware that it hasn t always been there, I have non cancerous tumour in my breast and I think I may get ovarian cysts but I m yet to goto the doctors about it - could it be another tumour? Or something to worry about

hi there, you need to get a fine needle aspiration cytology of the lump done to know the oringin and the cause, then it can be treated accordingly depending on its nature. It is difficult to say whether it is something to worry about or not without seeing it but it would be best to rule out malignancy with a cytology study. Take care.
