Welcome to Health Care Magic.
Thanks for your query.
Clinical examination of the lump is a must.
It may be a boil or a cyst or Lipoma or any other type of lump.
Kindly contact a Physician and follow his advice for further management of your problem.
Thank you.

Thanks for query,
it seems that you might have lipoma or costochondritis of the ribs.
It is also possible to have enlarged spleen called splenomegaly.
Consult your doctor and get examined.
Ok and bye.
