can a knot in the upper left back (roughly chest high) cause tightness and pain in the center of the chest, worsened by motion/deep inhalations?

Doctor can evaluate: A "knot in the upper left back" means different things to different people. It can mean a cyst or other lump in the skin, it can be a growth of the bone, it can be a mass arising from the muscle, etc... So, an exam by a doctor will be needed. If the "knot" is connected or related to something deeper in the rib cage or inside the chest, then it may be related to the described symptoms.
