Yes: Any reproducible pain in the chest wall which is not caused by injury may fall into the category of costochondritis. Think of that as temporary aches and pains that are structural - not associated with underlying pathology. Since the chest is an area of of great importance, your doctor needs to be doing this evaluation and making the proper diagnosis.
