Pain with deep brth: Usually when you have pain with a deep breath we think what grandma used to call pleurisy..inflammation of the lining of the lung. Since you also have pain with movement it most likely is a pulled muscle, one of the small ones between your ribs. Heat, rest and ibuprofen for a couple of days. If it doesnt get better in 2 wks see your Doc. Very uncommon to be a cancer. ...Read more

Be ready: If you have fever, shortness of breath or weak and lightheaded, you should be evaluated today. If you feel ok other than the pain, and symptoms are not worsening, you could wait and see if it persists for a couple of days, especially if you can identify a well-defined area of tenderness in the chest wall. That would tell you it's probably a musculoskeletal problem. Low back pain may be unrelated. ...Read more
