What could cause moderate pain in chest that has been constant for 5 weeks and started with a lump under my left rib that has since gone?

What could cause moderate pain in chest that has been constant for 5 weeks and started with a lump under my left rib that has since gone?

Many things: It is pretty clear that this is not coronary artery disease (heart attack) due to the duration of the symptoms. A lump may be caused by: hematoma (bruise), abscess (infection), or even malignancy. If the lump went away on its own, not likely to be malignancy (cancer). A bruise or infection is more likely. There are some odd inflammatory processes, but i don't how they would correlate to this. ...Read more

Muscular pull  type feeling left armpit onto chest for about 3weeks went then came back no lump, really worried what could cause this?

Muscular pull: When you press your chest does it hurt? Could becostochondritis and inflammation of the insertion of muscle to ribs.

If no pain on touch would evaluate for pulmonary clot and have a breast exam( mammo). Also consider gastritis,try maalox or MVP.. F/U with doctor in next 24 hrs ...Read more

GI problem seem cause my sore throat, throat clearing, feeling of lump in throat, difficulty breathing & swallow. Can it cause severe chest pain too?

Yes, reflux can: Cause significant chest pain. In fact that is the origin of the term heartburn. On the other hand, not all chest pain in people with GERD is GI in origin. If in doubt, go to ER or an urgent care, if this is unlike anything you've experienced before and is accompanied by shortness of breath, cardiac issues need to be checked for and ruled out. ...Read more

My sister has two medium sized lumps on her chest between her shoulders and neck  and one under her armpit. What could be the  cause.

Chest lumps: The causes of your sister's lumps can be multiple. It doesn't sound like they are in her breasts, though, but if they are, she needs to have them checked promptly. I suspect you may be referring to lymph nodes since lymph nodes are located in the armpits and in the areas between the shoulders and neck. I would have them checked as well as those lymph nodes may need prompt attention. ...Read more
