Please Help Pain In My Chest Am Very Worried.?

Postby Bardulf » Sun Oct 01, 2017 4:35 pm

Hi, im 25 year old female, and i have this pain in my sternum on the right side just above where the underwire from my bra sits. It only hurts when i touch it, feels bruised but I've not had any knocks or accidents and i would remember this. It does not hurt to breath on or out, and unless i touch it it does not hurt. I did google this and just saw links to lung cancer and now i am totally freaking out PLEASE HELP i work as a gardener which involves alot of heavy lifting and moving things about so maybe i pulled a muscle but then the pain only came on today and i have not worked since thursday (today is saturday)

please meet your doctor , the pain is felt only when you touch it . So it can not be heart related , lung cancer does not present as 'pain on touching' , if on touching pain on your chest is superficial , i think it might be wound , or some insect might have bitten you while sleeping , or may be fungus infection. You better meet a doctor , he will examine it and can know the detail of it.


Dont worry it is not a kung cancer . But dont neglect it , meet your doctor :)

Maybe you should switch to wearing a sports bra, for a while at least.
Your existing bra may be cutting off lymph flow in your breasts which can cause problems... http://www.007b.com/bras_breast_cancer.p...

ok let me tell you sumthing its not cancer. You said it hurts when you touch it , if it was a carcinoma it would not. So relax.

It might be because of the bra wire or because of working in the sun and sweating or a muscle pull. Give it some time it will heal automatically.

Yeah it's probably work related, don't worry. If it was pains in your chest related to your heart, it would be internal and your left side/arm would be affected. Take a painkiller and keep an eye on it. If it worsens by tomorrow or Monday then see your gp.
