There is a chest pain underneath my left collar bone when I exhale deeply?

Anything: Could be a problem with skin, nerves, muscle, shoulder, lung, heart, or stomach. See your doctor for a more thorough history, physical exam and further evaluation.

Bone (Definition)

Chest pain when I touch the center of my chest where the ribs meet just below the collar bone, it comes and goes. What can this be?

Chest pain when I touch the center of my chest where the ribs meet just below the collar bone, it comes and goes. What can this be?

Costochondritis: Point tenderness is a symptom of costochondritis (tenderness in the cartilage between the ribs). Try putting ice on fhe painful spot and try tylenol/ibuprofen. Some heart problems such as pericarditis (inflammation in the sac around the heart) can cause pain. Blood clots in the lung (pulmonary embolus) can cause chest pain. Avoid activity that makes it hurt. Chk with your doctor for cause.

16 years of age. Constant chest pain only on left side of chest. Below collar bone. Only medication is nexplanon. What could this be?

16 years of age. Constant chest pain only on left side of chest. Below collar bone. Only medication is nexplanon. What could this be?

It is best to see MD: It is still best to see your doctor as we don't have much information to go on by, and also we don't have labs or cxr to look at. Your doctor can order all that for evaluation. Contraceptive pills are risks also for certain things including blood clot. It may all be just muscle or tendon strain but best to be examined.

Pain over left collar bone bf neck when taking a deep breathe something chest pain it happens every now and then sometime serious or no?

Pain over left collar bone bf neck when taking a deep breathe something chest pain it happens every now and then sometime serious or no?

Muscular: Sounds muscular, definitely not heart. Is it hurting only when you take a very deep breath or even with shallow breaths? Is there a sore spot when you press different places on your chest? If you're coughing, have fever, and/or feel short of breath, you need to see your doctor. Otherwise, I'd say "not serious".

Large hard mass on right collar bone with off and on chest pain and neck stiffness?

Mass: If this is a new swelling, I would be concerned for an infection. Other possibilities would be bony mass or possible dislocation of clavicle and sternum.

Arm weakness: While serious conditions like stroke and heart attack are not common among young people, they can occur. Chest pain needs to be taken seriously and evaluated by a doctor if it is concerning to you. Similarly, sudden weakness on one side could indicate a stroke or other vascular problem. Get checked out immediately.

Occasionally I get right chest pain &feel tightening of throat between collar bones few hours after a meal. Swallowing triggers more pain. What to do?

Occasionally I get right chest pain &feel tightening of throat between collar bones few hours after a meal. Swallowing triggers more pain. What to do?

Throat tightening: If your connection is correct and your symptoms are connected to food ingestion you will definitely benefit from a medical evaluation, ideally with your doc. Your symptoms are suggesting either an anatomic, for example diverticulum or functional, for example spasm-esophageal abnormality. Based on the assessment by your doc a further referral to a gi specialist may follow.

Been having pain in my chest right under my collar bone in the middle. Only hurts when I turn or move a certain way.?

Strained ligament: If it only hurts when you move it might be a partially torn ligament that attaches the clavicle to the sternum. This can take months to heal. See your doctor and make sure that's all it is.

I've had intermittent pain around my collar bone and just under in top of chest for five weeks and it isn't getting better?

I've had intermittent pain around my collar bone and just under in top of chest for five weeks and it isn't getting better?

Get checked: If no better after acetaminophen, an NSAID like naproxen if safe for you, or local heat or ice, then see your clinician. It's not likely a health-threatening problem, but I'm sure it affects your quality of life.

I have a pinching pain in the middle sort of left part of my chest. It comes and goes all day. Sometimes the pinching goes under my collar bone too???

Nerve: If the pain is sharp and fleeting, is brought on by a deep breath or cough, a pinched or irritable intercostal nerve which runs between two ribs may be the cause. This is a nuisance rather than a serious problem and usually resolves on its own. Lung pathology seems less likely, but see your physician if symptoms persist or worsen.

My chest hurts a lot mostly on my right side. ..Should I be worried? I have pains on my left side sometimes but usually closer to my collar bone.

Nonspecific: Your complaint is unfortunately rather nonspecific and could be due to any number of things, such as chest specific pathology (i.e. Lungs, heart, great vessels), soft tissue inflammation (myofasciitis), spine (disc degeneration, pinched nerve, etc). If the pain has been present for a long time or is not getting any better you should see a physician.

Hard lumps in upper chest and on and under my collar bone, what could it be?

Hard lumps in upper chest and on and under my collar bone, what could it be?

Hard to say: This is a bit unusual. Are they tender or red or very itchy? Certain rashes can seem to be like lumps. If they have been there a long time, they are probably nothing to worry about. However, if new, and if you have any other symptoms like fever, tiredness, or lumps under your armpits, you should probably be seen by someone who can examine them and your whole body to see what is going on.
