Terrifed Please Help If You Can

I have a nodule on the tip of my xiphoid, its hard to the touch and somewhat tender. I have had a chest xray that showed my lungs are clear. I am heading to the doctor tomorrow for a second opinon. The first group of doctors are very lax in sending me for a sternum xray or ct. Anyone think this could just be normal xiphoid?
Thanks a million!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It could be normal or benign nodule. Just take pain killers like naproxen.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
