Probably unrelated: A dull pain in the right side from what you describe sounds like a musculoskeletal issue. It is probably not related to the breast exam. You may have strained something doing normal activity like yoga, cleaning etc. Then after having the exam you became aware? You can try ibuprofen, if it persists see you doctor. ...Read more

Cause unclear: This could be a number of things. One thing that does jump out is that it is all on the right side. It is mostly in your chest and right breast.

Hard lump/bump above right breast but below collar bone. Also have pain on upper right arm. What could it be?

Be seen: I definitely would not hesitate to be seen. In that area, the most common cause would likely be a swollen lymph node, which can often come before or after a febrile illness. Although it would be unusual in your age group, I would not hesitate to be seen by a general surgeon if it does not resolve to make sure it is not a neoplastic process. ...Read more

UR squeezing 2 hard!: All muscles in hand/arm/elbow have connections to your upper arm, that has connections to your shoulders, side muscles, pectorals, and neck! It's all interconnected.

Women are notorious for having atypical symptoms for heart disease. The loss of voice does not fit, but the rest is concerning for a cardiac cause to be ruled out first and foremost. ...Read more
