Your symptoms could be explained by quite a variety of conditions, so your problem could be very simple or serious. There is no way to tell from your description if it is serious -- you should definitely get a professional evaluation from your physician to make sure.
i have a small lump on my ribs, about 2 to 3 inches down from the breast,its not on the breast at all... its small and circular... it feels a little tender, what could it be? Should i get it checked right away?

As Dr. Geoff said, an evaluation from your health professional will give you an answer and my personal opinion is always the sooner the better. It's better to hurry, get it checked, and find out it's nothing serious than to wait and risk problems later.

So yes, get it checked right away! ;)
