Bewildering Breast: Augmentation comes with the risk of rupture and extrusion or leakage of the implant contents. In most cases the body will absorb these substances depending on the content (saline vs. Silicone). In the case of silicone and other materials an inflammatory reaction can occur and will irritate the underlying muscle, connective tissue and nerves. If the arm is affected seek evaluation of the issue. ...Read more

Pain below left breast, on rib! Flat squishy bump, painful even to the touch! Numbness in leg, cesarean 3months ago! Lump- since birth?

Pain below left breast, on rib! Flat squishy bump, painful even to the touch! Numbness in leg, cesarean 3months ago! Lump- since birth?

If the lump has: Been there since birth, it is unlikely to be causing the problem. If you have pain underneath your rib, then you need to work with your family physician or Internal medicine to find out if you need further studies like Xrays or CTs to evaluate if the pain is related to blood clots, scar tissue, or muscle or cartilage strain. Hope this helps and thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

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

Heart likely OK.: Although burning sensations in the chest and tops of breasts can be a symptom of coronary artery disease these should be accompanied by either ekg changes or changes in cardiac enzymes etc. If these are all negative then, I would feel comfortable that the heart really is ok and then, work with your doctor to look for other causes to your symptoms such as medication, thyroid, or B12 problems, . ...Read more
