Hi! Thanks for the welcome anyway! For a little more background, I have always had a small lump below my sternum. It was a little tender, but never really painful. This past September, I had horrible chest pains that made me pass out. I had to go to the ER to have injections of lidocaine in my chest. They tried to say it was my IBprofen intake, but after tests and med switches we found out it wasnt. The lump grow from regular size to the size of a golf ball where you can actually see it through my shirt. It causes severe chest pains and limits my motion in my left arm. As well as the lump the lymph node in my armpit has been swollen also. Tested everything... catscans, bone scans, chest xrays. Now I am having all of the cartiledge taken out of the left side of my sternum between my ribcage.. anyone heard of that? With a lil more back ground it helps. Thanks.. Good girl, Bad DNA
