Lump In The Middle Sternum Accompanied By Tightness And Palpitations?
In the afternoon, my name is Nisa, age 34. Since I was pregnant with my 3rd child, I have a lump in the middle of the bone just below my chest, because the lump feels round and large and small. If the lump feels big, I often feel tight. heartbeat like a nervous person. If held very painful. What lump is that? Is it dangerous to me ???
Good evening Nisa, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The conditions that you experience can occur due to various things, including:
Hernia, or entry of an organ into another cavity
Lipoma or growth of fat tissue
And it could also be other possibilities, depending on the results of the examination. Our advice, you should check your condition at a general practitioner first, especially when the lump appears. So far, the suspicion is more towards the hernia, which could be causing your stomach acid to rise. When stomach acid rises, the symptoms are indeed tightness and palpitations. But again this needs to be confirmed by direct examination. If there really is a tendency towards hernias, you will be referred to a surgeon to be sure again. The handling you will receive later depends on the results of this inspection.
Meanwhile, do not need to worry too much, avoid overeating, avoid eating spicy, sour, oily and coffee foods, do not lift heavy loads, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
