Pain under my left breast exactly where my heart is, pain when laying down on left side, does not go away, I have asthma, makes my breathing very hard?

Not sure: There could be many things that cause your symptoms. The good news is that a heart attack in a 21 yr old woman would be highly unlikely. Usually is a musculoskeletal problem. However, I recommend you see a doctor and get it checked out. The only way to say for sure is with a detailed history and physical exam and maybe a few specific tests. Get it checked out. ...Read more

I'm 16, I'm five days away from my next period and I've found a lump below my right breast when lying down, it's also painful to the touch.?

I'm 16, I'm five days away from my next period and I've found a lump below my right breast when lying down, it's also painful to the touch.?

Needed Medical check: Breasts can become tender and lumpy for a few days before your menses begin (prementruallly). So I would advise you to wait and watch for 7-10 days and recheck yourself after the period has come and gone (5-6 days after the onset of menses). If you still feel a lump/mass then it is a good idea to be examined by your family doctor. A benign tumor called Fibroadenoma is a possiblility to look for if ...Read more

Get into good health: If one is in good health without hormonal imbalances (such as thyroid problems), hair will grow as much as nature allows. It may be one's destiny to have slower growing hairs as one ages (but that would be considered normal).
