Painful lump on upper rib cage below breast, constant pain. CT scans normal. Causes and cure?

I have a painful lump on my upper rib cage, just below my breast . I ve had 2CT scans done, and was told that they don t see anything. One doctor even suggested that it is just the way that I m shaped. The lump is getting larger, and it really bothers me at night. It is a constant pain, and the pain is also felt on my lower ribs now too.

Dear patient,
your case is lump on upper rib.The first thing you have to do is consult a general surgeon / lady specialist,show the lump,and tell them that your net doctor advised biopsy of the lump.Mean while you use Tab.Taxium-O 200 mg a day for 5days,which will take care of the inflammation of the lump if any,and use diclophenac +paraacetamol (DYNAPAR/ ESPHEN) to get relief from pain.U can also use Relaxyl ointment for external use.Further treatment depends upon the report of biopsy,which U can mail me for further advice.
