Tomorrow I have a Mamogram and blood work. I've had odd 'symptoms' for months and months. Pain here and there and in most of my joints. I shrug them off because I have arthritis in my spine and relate them to the weather. lol. But too I have had peridoic pain under both sides of my ribs, near the galbladder/spleen areas. Heck, everyone has pain, right? One question, the order ststed 'Mass' on chest Wall.WHAT is a "Mass" anyway?If this is cancerous, what types of cancer can be found on the chest wall?It is near my sternum.Thanks for your input.Any appreciated.
Hi there - I was wondering what the result of your condition was. I am a 40-year-old man who has developed lumps on ribs and a mass on right chest. How are you doing? Thanks Nick
