Lump right above left breast, was tender at first but not anymore. Now i'm having pain and aches all over my body on and off, what blood test i need?

Multiple symptoms: I would suggest that you have a doc take your history and conduct a thorough physical exam. He will be the best person to decide what blood tests you need.

Why do the whole left side of my body ache?

Why do the whole left side of my body ache?

Doctor can examine: Normal, healthy people don't get aches without a reason, so if the entire left side of one's body ached, but the right side was fine, that would be very strange. A doctor would have to evaluate to see what might be wrong. Infections (flu, etc.) and auto-immune diseases can cause total body aches, but not just one-sided. Spinal cord and nerve problems can be one-sided. ...Read more
