Xiphoid process

I have this pain and lump between my ribs at the base of the separation and I went to a surgeon and he told me it was xiphoid process. He said there was nothing I can do about it, however I am in so much pain, especially when I have to wear a bra, which is all the time! Is it true that I just have to deal with it,or do you think I should get a second opinion?
