I want to ask my son on the stomach, exactly in the middle of his chest cavity, there is a lump the size of a marble when pressed, sometimes it also appears, a bit hard too. I’m curious and once asked the midwife she said it was an organ in her body… but I’m still confused and worried… please explain, thank you.

Regards,


From the information you conveyed, this condition is probably an xyphoid bone, this condition is a prominent bone form or easily visible in every human being, especially in infants. The position of this bone is right between the sternum and abdominal cavity. Therefore, this is a normal condition for every human being.

However, if this is different from what you mean, then you should consult directly with your family doctor or pediatrician. The doctor will conduct an immediate examination and if necessary, an X-ray examination can be planned.


Treatment will be given according to the results of the examination obtained.


That's the information we can convey, read also the discussion.
