Must call the doctor: Any person with chest, left shoulder, and left arm pain symptoms has to go to her doctor or the E.R. to be checked right away for a heart attack. That means not waiting at home to see if it becomes a bad heart attack. It could turn out to be a lung problem, a bone or muscle problem, or an acid reflux problem, but the heart attack kills people. As the saying goes, better safe than sorry. ...Read more

Ribs: Sharp pain in the breast may be related to a "jammed" rib, called intercostal neuralgia. The pain is sharp and stabbing, may be in the front or back. A related condition is costochondritis, which is an inflammation of the cartilage where the ribs attach to the breastbone (sternum).
I advise that you see a good pain management physician.

Pinched nerve: Because patients having cardiac problems can have these symptoms, you should have this ruled out. But the most common cause is an irritation of a nerve in the neck by a bone spur or herniation that can cause pain or numbness that runs down the arm into the hand. An MRI can usually show the cause of the problem if it does not resolve. Thank you for the question. ...Read more

If it is referred from teh gastroentesinal tract this can also be felt thsi way. Nonetheless: Heart disease is a major cause of death in women and though I doubt this is cardiac I would contact your physician now and get seen if necessary now. ...Read more

Cancer is unlikely: Cancer is unlikely in your age group and rarely hurts. It could be a poorly fitted bra or some other irritant. Are you doing regular self exams? If so, do you feel anything different? It is most likely trauma. You could have some fibrocystic change which is benign and doesn't increase the risk of cancer but does cause pain usually in the 2nd half of the cycle and is made worse with caffeine. ...Read more

If your doctors: Feel a lump, it is still a concern even if the ultrasound shows nothing. Neither mammography nor ultrasound are 100% sensitive. A small percentage of breast cnacers are found only on physical examination. So, it may very well turn out to be benign, but you should probably talk to your doctor about the next steps. ...Read more
