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

Lumps and bumps.: We don't have enough info! But any new lump, without any other symptoms, if small and painless, can be watched for a week or two. If it persists, get checked.

A painful lump, with fever, getting bigger fast: ER. ...Read more
