Random, infrequently, acute, & deep (like my bones are being crushed) pain that goes from my elbow to my hand. Braces & OTC meds fail. What can I do?

Not an easy answer: In order to make a diagnosis of atypical problems a doc needs to take into account a lot of data and put the clinical picture together. This is what old-school "art of medicine" is. You mention CT scan (of what? And b/l mastectomy? for what? Breast CA? Or prophylaxis? Many things factor into a diagnosis.

Have pain in both of my elbows. Actual bones don't hurt, but joints do. Pain radiates to lower arms, again not actual bones. Still worried... Cancer?

Not likely cancer: Symmetrical joint pain is not likely to be cancer. More likely is some type of inflammatory problem, arthritis or tendinitis. See a healthcare provider for help if it does not resolve with simple measures like anti-inflammatory medication.

I chipped my elbow bone do I need a cast?

Matters which bone: It matters which bone in the elbow was chipped. Usually after a chipped or "non displaced" elbow fracture a cast is not needed because putting an elbow in a cast will cause the elbow to get very stiff. Usually a sling for a few days to a week is needed then gentle motion is started. See your md to get the definitive diagnosis.

The muscles get sore from over use and from improper positioning and then our repetitive motions keep the injury from healing properly. Rest and anti-inflammatories along with ergonomic evaluation are often needed to get better.

Why does it feel like I have a air bubble in between my elbow bone?

Why does it feel like I have a air bubble in between my elbow bone?

Bone aches: What you're experiencing is actually not bubbles or air pockets it's essentially the synovial fluid or bursa sacs which act as a lubricants to allow your joints to move freely. If the bursae is inflamed it will retain fluid and thus make your joint feel like it's has pressure or air in it. Hope this helps to clarify things!
