Odd Questions

Hello everybody! In the past few months, I've read quite a few books about Camus, mostly literary criticism. Because I have to wait until after my finals to really dig into any true biography about him, I thought I'd ask all of you a few of my rather odd questions (the answers to which I couldn't find elsewhere online). If anybody could answer them, I would be very happy. :)

1. In a few photos I've noticed that there is a lump on his chest. Does anybody happen to know what it is? Am I just imagining things? Here is a (bad quality) photo to show you what I'm talking about:

2. How tall was he? (For that matter, does anybody know how tall Sartre was? I know he was short, but that is all...)

3. Did he ever meet Samuel Beckett? I've quickly looked in a few biographies to find out (via their indices), but when Beckett is mentioned (if at all), it is usually in relation to the nobel prize he would win.
