Left breast and rib pain

Common Questions and Answers about Left breast and rib pain


Avatar f tn Hi, So I woke up this morning at about 3am and had a sharp piercing pain under my right breast on my rib. The pain has eased off and it's not sharp now but it's still there and aching. The left side when you push you can feel rib on the right it's abit squishy then ribs. So I don't know if there is fluid or what's going on. I have a ante natal app tomorrow and will ask but has anyone else had this? Could the baby have bruised me on the inside?
Avatar m tn For the last week or so I've been having an occasional stabbing pain near the bottom of my left rib and other times right under my left breast. It was stabbing pain randomly, but now it's just a dull pain whenever I bend over or lean over. It's gotten so bad that I practically have to be laying down to keep it from hurting. It almost feels like there's a bubble underneath my ribs.
Avatar n tn The last few months i had some irregular heartbeats and now the left breast around upper rib area is swollen and super sore to touch it swollen all the way to armpit area but not in armpit I can feel lumps in both breasts however I am not a doctor I have no idea... any thoughts what this could be? Feels like a pinched nerve or something I get that sharp pain it is also really warm to the touch . There are no visible bruises nor did I bump or injure the area. Should I get checked?
Avatar n tn I am a healthy, active 21 year old female and I have a sharp pain under my left rib cag below my breast bone. I have had constantly for 3 days now with it becoming more severe when I eat and drink. I have had it on and off for about a year and can go months without ever feeling it then it comes back with vengence - abit like an 'attack'.

Avatar f tn After openheart surgery - it has been 9 weeks and I am doing pretty good but still have a strong achey pain in my right rib/breast area. Right now I have a little cold and the cough has really made it worse. It is not in the center or left side at all. Is this common - why? How long til it passe?
Avatar n tn For 2 weeks I have had a pain at the base of my left breast. It is sore and feels bruised but nothing is visible. It hurts to breath deep, cough, sneeze or blow my nose. My doctor thought I had a cracked rib. The xrays revealed nothing abnormal. I do not sleep well at night because when I move certain ways it also hurts. I am at wits end.
Avatar f tn I'm 26weeks pregnant and have been having rib pain for a week now.. I went to get it checked but the Dr said its just pulled muscle but I haven't done anything strenuous to pull that part of my body. The pain goes from under my right breast, to my sides leading to right under my right shoulder blade. I could be sitting down or laying down and I would feel that intense pain... Anyone going through something like this but have a different diagnosis?
Avatar n tn Now I am experiencing pain in 2 of my ribs on the front left side and a spot on the back of my rib cage on the right side. My oncologist thinks its pulled muscles but I really don't feel much pain unless I touch that area. What is this? Has anyone else experienced this with this procedure?
Avatar n tn I have been having pain in my side for about two weeks, about two inches down from my left breast on top of my ribs. I thought it might be a bruise or something but there was no sign of bruising. It has continued to ache of and on. Two days ago i noticed there is also now a lump that is about 3inches long and as wide as an earth worm on top of my rib cage. I have not been doing anything to pull a muscle and the pain just started out of nowhere one night.
Avatar f tn So I am 36weeks today and for the last couple days I have been having rib pain on my left side right below my breast and it has been hurting like really bad. Help pls! Also as this is my first pregnancy, how does a contraction feel?
Avatar f tn I too experienced similar pain in my upper rib cage area. It seemed to be right in the rib. I am male. None-the-less, this last for a longtime, probably a year - it would come and go. At times the pain was so bad I couldn't sleep for days. I under went every test you can imangine - chest xray, ultrasound, bloodwork - nothing showed up. I thought for sure I had a cancer. I now think it was some short of viral infection - but who knows. The Dx was maybe pleurisie(sp?).
Avatar f tn I have been having constant pain/tightness under my left rib cage, directly under my left breast and towards the middle of my chest near my sternum. Nothing makes the feeling go away...even the chiropractor. I am now having pain near my left scapula, left shoulder and neck. When I was 17 (29 now) I had a case of costochondritis...could that be it? I went to the ER a few months ago when this first started and they said my heart was fine and a chest CT with contrast looked good.
Avatar n tn I have pain underneither my left breast on my chest. Like a pulled muscle but I am worried about it because it even hurts to push a broom. What could this be?
Avatar n tn Nothing was found. However, I have a lymph node that is larger on the left side under the armpit and near the rib always more swollen than on the right. I have muscle tightness and pain that comes and goes. Sometimes, It radiates around to the upper left scapula and lately down my abdomen into the left groin. I try to relax and trust the CT scan and ultra sound results but it persists and there is no explanation as to WHY!!
Avatar f tn I am only 21 and I have a really bad pain under my left breast. It comes and goes, and the strength of the pain varies. I've been to the doctor last year and they did a heart ekg(i think thats what its called) and they didnt find anything.. It is really random when it comes. I've had this pain for about a week now. I am not sure what the cause would be from. Any IDEAS?
Avatar n tn I have pain from sternum, into ribs just under left breast. Feels bruised to touch but haven't done anything to cause it. Hurts to wear bra and hurts to lay on left side. What could be causing this?
Avatar f tn It happens when Im tying shoelaces or lowering myself into the bath or bending down.My mum gets the same pain but she has a rib that clicks over onto another rib and her cousin has the same problem.Do you think thats what it sounds like?

Avatar f tn It is a benign, painful, nonsuppurative localized swelling of the costosternal, sternoclavicular, or costochondral joints, most often involving the area of the second and third ribs Other possibilities are fibromyalgia(musculoskeletal pain) ,lower rib pain syndromes(pain in the lower chest or upper abdomen, a tender spot on the costal margin, and reproduction of the pain by pressing on the spot),pain due to gall bladder or other GI pathologies and chest trauma and fracture of the ribs.
Avatar f tn I have a major pain in left breast and surrounding area-my doctor said I might have pulled a muscle from coughing (bad smokers cough plus had bronchitis) this pain really hurts-I can not get up from bed without holding my chest and trying to stop the pain should I wait and see if it heals itself?
Avatar f tn it started in my back (worse when drinving) and i also feel pain and weirdness in the front on the same side (left). I feel like it always hurts, just wondering if this is normal.
Avatar f tn I have had a pretty bad pain in my left breast, slong the outside and the bottom along my ribs for 3 months now. Prior to this, I had bronchitis for a while. My cough finally subsided about 2 weeks ago, but the pain is worse. It goes to my back at times, and my left side has now noticably larger then my right.
Avatar n tn I've had a lump on my rib, under my left breast for about 6-7 years (at least). My doctor originally told me it was a "fatty tumor" and no need for surgery (unless it got worse). It is not only bothering me more, but the pain is also in my back (exact spot as the front) and my skin is extremely tender and sometimes painful to touch. I have a doctors appointment Friday, but in the meantime, has anyone experienced these symptoms? Thank you and God Bless!
