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 Please Help! I have had a pain in my chest area above my left breast for over 2 Years now. I have had a breast reduction thinking this would solve my problem BUT 1 year later the problem continues! It is tender to touch, I am not short of breath, and it hurts even if I am sitting down without strinuous movements. I am thinking there is a serious problem that is being over looked. If anyone can suggest anything please feel free! I believe there is some kind of blockage or clot.
Avatar m tn My daughter (10 years old) is complaining of pain in the left breast region, especially on touching No such pain is there in the right breast region. There is no perceptible swelling in the breast region. She has normal growth and as of now there are no signs of puberty setting in. Is a detailed examination necessary? Who should be the specialist - paediatrician or gynaecologist?
Avatar n tn In May of this year I was scheduled for my 6 month post surgery eval and when the surgeon called to schedule appointment I told him about a swollen area in the left chest wall that felt like fluid. He was concerned and wanted 2 see me that day. He withdrew a sample of fluid to test for cancer. Good news is it was not. He said it looked like lypmh fluid but he had never seen that happen before. Swelling was reduced for a couple of days but then it grew back to the same size and bigger.
Avatar n tn Hi I am 43 year old male and or the last year or so I have been getting a bit of a chest pain in my upper left chest at breast area. I only get pain immediately after eating something (so might get it multiple times per meal) I seem to get it most often when I am eating fast or big bites (or both) It isn't extremely painful, just uncomfortable. And it goes away almost always after a quick stretch of my arms above my head, or some sort of drink.

I could feel painful area about square inch area , very sensitive skin in this area as well, pain lasting all the time. I have been told it might be related to hormones, muscles underneath the breast tissue or heart. I had my hormones and the heart checked few times and it was all good. I would like to add I have very systematic periods and of course before menstruation I feel equal heaviness of both breasts.
Avatar m tn Hi All About 10 days ago, a pain came up suddenly in my chest (breast?). Basically the pain/discomfort came up quite suddenly and I was merely sitted comfortably. Right hand side, quite localised, breast area, 3 inches to the left of my right nipple (not quite stenum area) and 1 inch up. The pain feels like it is external (I am not certain though as pain/discomfort is hard to describe!), like after someone has hit me in that spot. My movement of the right arm/hand is not restricted.

Avatar f tn Hello , I’ve been suffering from lower left chest pain , under left breast, it’s pretty chronic and gets worse with Heavy meals or position. I also experience cramp like symptoms in that area like a soreness. I have bellching episodes , shoulder pain and just discomfort. I’ve had ECG , cat scan , thallium stress test , X-ray , echo cardio gram , ultrasound of the entire area. I’m not what rude todo. Was given gabpectin , I take aspirin , and Lipitor. Anyone else have something similar?
Avatar n tn It seems to stem from the chest area and progress into my left arm. At times, my hands [both] become almost numb-like - to the point where I am unable to grasp a pen correctly. The corresponding area in my back seems to be affected and I also feel loss of breath when walking relatively short distances. This has been ongoing for a few years now, however it is becoming increasingly frequent.
Avatar n tn I'm not an expert but the pain feels muscular to me or at least the pain in the breast area. the pain travels from one part of the breast to the other, not always in the same spot, sometimes moving several times a day. At times if I can find the pain a little bit of massage can make the pain a little less painful, but never goes away. Under my arm feels like it's swollen when I press my arms to my side, but when checked it's the same as the right side.
797375 tn?1256234862 When I cough I get this really sharp pain in the left side of my chest upper part at top of breast area. And it was happening every now and then but here lately. It's ever time and the pain is worse and stays longer. I thought at first it was gas pain. but wouldn't that be all the time not just when I cough. Like so many others I don't have insurance and we don't have a local clinic that is income based. So going to the doctor is a last resort for me.
Avatar f tn GERD would usually present with a midline chest pain that can radiate to the area in between shoulder blades and not so commonly in the breast. I suggest you have this evaluated by your doctor to pinpoint the cause. Regards and God bless.
Avatar n tn For the past 10-12 days I have been experiencing pain in the side of my left breast. The pain is also in my lower left shoulder blade. It seems to wrap around in a sense and feels very muscular. I have been asking my husband to rub my back and the muscles are obviously twisted up. I do have breast implants and was wondering if it could somehow be related. Ironically, I was just diagnosed with GERD as well. I am 34 years old and other than muscle aches and pains am relatively healthy.
Avatar n tn I've let this go for a while convinced it would go away, or it was all in my head, or that maybe it was something really bad and I didn't want to find out. I'm 21 - and last night the pain in my chest (above my left breast, in shoulder, underside of arm, and left rib area), and the tingling got so bad that I woke my fiance up and we made a 4am trip to the ER.
Avatar n tn I have been feeling a sticking needle pain on and off in the left breast area????? Had a mammogram done about a month; everything is fine.
Avatar f tn For well over a month now I have been having pain in my left breast area it goes from constant pretty much all day to non existant.. then at time it's a sharp stabbing pain out of no where for like a second then there is a dull pain a few minutes after that lingers does anyone else experience this or something like it. And is it just severe anxiety or something else..
Avatar f tn Pain can occur in that area from a whole host of mammo said, it could be GI in nature, could be anxiety/ could be related to something respiratory (for example, what you describe is a very common symptom of an upper resp infection, bronchitis). You've had a thorough cardiac work-up, so you can relax in that respect. My suggestion to you would be...if it continues, certainly make an appt with your doc to rule out any other possible physical cause...
Avatar n tn occasionally i get pain underneath my left breast or in the area whre the breasts is not sharp but throbs and this pain may at imes last for up to a week. i went to a doctor who did scans and x rays and he said that he found nothing wrong with me and just gave me pain killers. in 2000 in had an operaton in my left braest thre was a mass which the doctor said was fibro was sent to pathology depaertment but they said it was just a tissue mass and not cancerous.
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 I'm having uncomfortable pain underneath my left breast where it connects to the body I was told it possibly could be acid reflux and then did a breast exam on myself and felt thickened tissue. were the bread actually connects to my body and was worried that it might be something serious. Also during the same time having a lot of stomach aches after eating.
1549941 tn?1297855345 I was fine for 1 1/2 days then began experiencing tremendous pain in my left rib cage area. I went to my chiropractor who said ALL of my ribs were out on the left side, of which she thought had happened from being filled with air from the procedure. I felt somewhat better after my treatment, but it was short lived.
