I been having upper back pain, sore breast, tiredness, headaches, lightheaded, and some what of chest pain. I am worried, can it be from my heart?

Probably not: Low chance based on your description, but as a doctor my decision about whether or not to check your heart in the office would be based upon your risk factors for heart disease and your description of the pain itself. For example: Is it brought on by eating? Breathing in? Exerting yourself? How long does it last for when you have it? Is it always in the some place? What does it feel like? ...Read more

Constant chest pain under left breast wheni breathe or lay down. Very tender to lay on or touch. Worsens when coughing or laughing?

Costocondritis: I suspect this is either costochondritis - inflammation in the joint between your sternum and ribs or an intercostal muscle tear. Less likely is a rib fracture. Much of this depends upon your history leading up to this. Have you been coughing? Have you been doing heavy exercise or lifting? Do you have asthma? ...Read more

Relax and Repeat: You need to repeat the pregnancy test whenever you have a negative home test and still haven't started your period. One could give it a couple of days to a week as your level of HCG rises if in fact you are pregnant. Remember to avoid alcohol and stop smoking if you currently do. Eat well and exercise moderately.
Follow with MD if test remains neg. And you don't start your period. Good luck. ...Read more

Visited doctors about a sore breast, was told there was a hard mass of tissue but said it wasn't worrying her, what would cause worry?

Visited doctors about a sore breast, was told there was a hard mass of tissue but said it wasn't worrying her, what would cause worry?

Wrong diagnosis!: Let's just say for sake of argument that she is wrong. Who has the problem? Unless your doctor can prove that the mass is not a problem to your satisfaction, it is your life that is being "bet" on the correctness of her "no worry" reassurance. I'd ask for a second opinion with another doctor; maybe a biopsy to make sure the mass is benign! 20yo can and do get cancer (rarely, but possible)! ...Read more
