I am 28 weeks pregnant and had these 2 very distinct lumps

Customer Question
on one of my ribs...
I am 28 weeks pregnant and had these 2 very distinct lumps on one of my ribs and I just checked the area again, one feels like it’s gone and the other feels like it’s still there but maybe not as distinct as it used to be. Should I be concerned that they are changing?

No need for concern--obviously only benign things would change for the better like that

Can ribs have lumps on them that are just part of the rib or are they usually smooth?
Oncologist: tazechip, Other replied 1 month ago

The can have benign lumps on them

I got an ultrasound on that area like 4 months ago and it showed nothing abnormal. I guess I am just concerned because one is gone and one is still there
Oncologist: tazechip, Other replied 1 month ago

I understand but from what you've told me this isn't anything to worry about

It’s not very noticible unless you know it’s there or are looking for something. If it was something serious would it be very noticible or would have grown in the last couple months?
Oncologist: tazechip, Other replied 1 month ago

Yes to that

If you feel from the side it’s more noticible then if you feel it going up and down, could it be possible that i am just feeling part of my rib?
Oncologist: tazechip, Other replied 1 month ago

Yes--I'm sure that's all you're feeling
