Lungs hurt when taking a deep breath. What is the issue?

Vague Question

Pain
Pain with deep breathing could be either a cardiac(heart) or pulmonary(lung) issue. Either one is not necessarily a good thing and you should probably seek evaluation from a local physician because worse case scenario could be a life threatening event.

Question i fell off an ladder about 10 feet high landed on top of the ladder right on my ribs.my back turned instant black and blue. sometimes when taking a deep breath it hurts,twisting my back,coughing,or even laying on it it is painful, the pain has be

From

From what you described there is a possibility that you could have fractured / broken one or more ribs. I am concerned that with a fall from that height and some of your symptoms that you could have suffered a pulmonary contusion (damage to tissues in lungs). Back in the day people used to tape their chest, to reduce pain. Don't tape your chest ! I recommend that instead of just tuffing it out, you see the doctor to get this fully evaluated. It is better to be safe than sorry. I hope you have a speedy recovery.

For 2 1/2 weeks had sinusitis and bronchitis. Finished z pack. Saw PCP wed and was told my lungs were clear. Still bringing up mucous, though clear. Today chest feels tight and I have mild pain in heart area when taking deep breath. I do have mild asthma.

Hard to say

Sinus_infections
If wheezing and short of breath - maybe, but you should be seen by your doctor for another evaluation ASAP. BTW, Z-pack is great for bronchitis but worthless for sinusitis however, since 98% of all sinusitis is viral related, it probably makes no difference for your recovery time.

When I take a deep breath I feel a weird vibrating sensation in my lungs. I'm not sick or anything what can be the cause ? And I don't have any pain

Speak with your dr

Pain
WIth your previous medical history of abdominal mass and colon cancer, it's always best to start with your doctor first, who knows your history & may able to assist better in answering this question. f it feels or sounds 'crispy' or like it's rubbing on something, that's not normal to have these 'vibrations from the lungs'. Most importantly, let him/her find the cause & the answer will be there.

Pain in chest and back when i take a deep breath in and when i exhale fully.Back pain is like where my lungs are.Chest pain to the left. ideas Why?

Rib dislocation

Chest_pain
Could be a rib dislocation or possibly costochondritis (inflammation of where the ribs and cartilage meet). I would recommend seeing a osteopathic physician to see if they can correct the rib issue. Many times they can place the rib back in proper alignment. Make sure you see a DO that does manipulation as their main practice, they are the best.

For 3 weeks I have been having rib pain in my back. I had a friend pop my back and I fell over in pain. If I take a deep breath it kills my lungs?

Broken ribs

Chest-lung
You may have potentially broken your ribs. The majority heal without consequence in 6-8 weeks. Pain control is the mainstay of treatment.

My lungs hurts but i dont know if it is back pain i dont smoke ....i dont cough or fever.just every time i take deep breath or yawn to much to breath.

Thoracic spine

Pain
Since you already suffer from lower back pain, it is possible that you also have thoracic spine pathology, which is causing you to have chest wall pain. See a neurologist.
