How far from the midline? If you're slim, it could be just a rib joint showing . My sis had extra ribs which poked out! shock

about an inch from my sternum. it only appeared yesterday.

shameless bump

If it's just appeared then I'm not sure what it could be - a cyst or lymph node?

possibly something to do with lymph. it is in the right place

any other thoughts?

Quite likely to be a cyst but go to the docs to be on the safeside. If it is a cyst antibiotics will clear it up.

Have you been to the doc yet? If it's getting that big that quickly, surely it must be an infection of some sort?
