    Abnormal muscle lump on ribcage right below chest...why??

    recently i noticed a noticeable muscle lump that connects under my right pec on the rib cage. I've been working out for 3 years and i'm currently 20yo. at one time a while ago I noticed it, but it was very small and didn't think anything from it, but now it has gotten rather large as I continued to work out my chest. Is there any reason why its there, or how I can maybe get rid of it or equal it out. It's only on my right chest and not my left. It only comes up when i flex my abs or chest. heres some pics. thanks for the help

    It could just be a piece of your pectoralis that is connected strangely.

    Does it move when you cough? It could be a hernia between the intercostal muscles. This is very rare though.
    The first rule of cheat club is you do not talk about cheat club. The second rule of cheat club is you DO NOT talk about cheat club. Third rule of cheat cub, someone yells stop!, goes limp, taps out, the cheat is over. Fourth rule, one cheat at a time, fellas. Fifth rule, cheats will go on as long as they have to. And the sixth and final rule, if this is your first night at cheat club, you have to cheat.

    it stays in the same place and doesn't move at all. I'm kind of convinced its part of my pectoralis, but who knows. probly nothing i need to worry about, but i'm going to have it checked out soon. After doing some research I found out it could also be a hiatus hernia, if so i'm not worried because I have no symptoms, but i need to find a way to reduce it. probly from doing so many crunches, put a lot of pressure on my abdomen.

    It probably is part of your muscle, everyone's muscles are different shapes.

    Could be a fat cyst. I have three smaller versions of it on my arms and rib cage. Doctor said, it could be removed, but surgery is not covered by most health insurance cos.

    From what I have seen looking into it, seems to be a low "tendinous insertion" to the rib, Jay Culter has it. You can see it in Youtube videos of him doing chest workouts.

    Hi my name is brandon I'm 15 and am working out I have developed one of These weird bumps too except mine is right in between my two pecs my dad who also works out said it's just a muscle but because yours in in such an abnormal spot I'm thinkig it's just a weird way your right pec developed. All I can say it now you have something cool to show people at the gym or anthers else. It's almost like a customized muscle. But hey if you find out what it really is let me know because I it's bad I have to get mine cecked out as well. Okay man peace!

    Dude I got that same thing going on just on my left side, pretty much just recently it really showed up, must just be the way the muscles tie in. I don't really do much decline work or anything but do work my abs often but oh well, I've seen other guys with it Jim Cordova is one he's a 3 time Mr. Universe and Muscletech athlete. Just saying that cause I actually noticed it on him. But yeah I mostly noticed it recently I know this is the leanest I've been but other then that not much else I'm doing different to really make it come out. Oh well everbodys muscles are different I guess but it is still kind of weird and annoying.
