See a doc soon: Sudden chest pain on left side is non specific but can be serious. More details will be needed to make presumptive diagnosis. The pain could be coming from something less serious : stomach acid, inflammation of costal cartilage in the ribcage, skin inflammation, herpes. It could also be serious like heart attack, inflammation of sac covering the heart or lung. If persistent see a doctor soon.

Non specific: Might need more details to be specific. However could be skin condition or immunological condition. Better to see a good dermatologist - may need biopsy of the lump for diagnosis.

Good question: Diseases staging by the doctors are based on certain diagnostic points. These stages might not exactly co-relate with the severity of active symptoms the patients might encounter. Acuity of symptoms makes patients sicker. For example a person with stage 2 heart failure can be sicker when he/she has exacerbation, than who has stable stage 4 disease. Stage 4 does not always mean terminal.
