    Lump under my left rib cage
    Lauraholland posted:
    I have found a lump (feels like a small melon) under my left rib cage. It does not hurt, but it makes me feel nauseous when I push on it. I have I have lost 50 lbs since March 2008 and was recently treated for H-Pylori. I wonder if the lump is maybe my stomach that I am not used to feeling due to being over weight or is it something else? I have a regular physician that I will visit with soon but just looking for some answers until then! Thanks -

    Hi there, Please realize that it's not possible for anyone to be diagnosed over the internet. As you have said you have an unexplained lump that you are worried about please see your doctor for help. Before your doctor's visit you may want to use the Symptom Checker tool to pull up useful WebMD articles that may help you. - Annie
