I have a hard immovable lump on my sternum on

I have a hard immovable lump on my sternum on the left side just in the middle of my breast, I have a doctors appointment for that this Wednesday, but I’ve just discovered a new lump situated on the left side of my ribs at the bottom. I’m getting the occasional pain in my lungs when I’m breathing sometimes as well, I was just wondering if I can get any answers, do you think they’re linked?

I have noticed that I have a hard lump on my sternum. It doesn t hurt but it seems to be getting larger. Also, I have arthritis that is getting worse and I am having pain in most of my joints, including hands, arm, hips and shoulders. I am taking tramidol and hydrocodone for pain.

I have a lump about the size of a pea on my sternum between my breast. I noticed it in Oct but it has grown some in the last few weeks. It is tender, but I think a lot of the tenderness is because I am constantly messing with it. It is hard (but not bone hard) and it does not move. It feels like it is attached to my sternum. It did develop kinda like a pimple over the lump that had white liquid (smelly) drain from it. I have an appt with my doctor next week, but really concerned.

3 days ago noticed marble-size lump to left of sternum. I thought it might be sabaceous cyst or boil, however now it is the size of golf ball. It isn t red or infected looking just hard mass. I saw Dr. today he tried to drain it to see if it was an abscess. There was no pus or signs of infection present. The Dr. also inserted a q-tip about an inch into the incision and also tried to aspirate any fluid. To our surprise, there was no pus and only serosanguinous fluid present. Minimal drainage. The Dr. placed me on Keflex and said if it isn t better in 2 days to notify him and he will refer me to a surgeon. Any thoughts as to what this might be. Of course I have been researching articles on the web, and now I am scared that it could be cancer. Although, I though most cancers don t grow that big in 3 days. Any suggestions on what I should do? I do have history of lipomas and fibrous tumors. I do smoke about 1/2 pk per day. I do not take any medication on regular basis. I am 40, 5 8 and weigh 175 lbs.
