Hello,I am Dr. Aren and i will help with your query.This probably appears to be a swelling of the Costochondral joint(the joint between the sternum and the ribs).This will subside in the lying down posture.If there is localised pain/tenderness,use of ibubrufen or Aleve will probably help reduce the pain.Other possibility would be a soft tissue injury at the joint.
Yes,it would probably be the same even at that spot.A minor injury to that part of the chest,like the bumping of the head of your daughter may cause it. You can discuss this with your PCP/Gynaecologist as this is probably nothing serious.
Only touching the breastbone will not cause such a swelling.
