I have a pain in the left side of my chest, side of breast and under armpit, is this my heart or lung? Hurts to take deep breathes

Pleurisy

Lung_ct
that is typically more related to your lungs and can be something as benign as pleurisy or something more serious such as a blood clot to the lungs. if you feel short of breath, have rapid heart rate, or are in any other way concerned you should be evaluated right away. If you are unsure then call your doctor's office and be connected to the doctor on call.

I have a very painful lump left side breast. Was up more towards my armpit now it's down my whole left side of breast. I'm scared. It's painful. I do have large breasts so is it something to be so scared for?! I'm worried.

See your doctor

While this sounds like something that may be treated medically, you shoud not assume it is a simple issue. Please see your doctor as soon as you are able. I hope that your problem is easy to treat and cure.

Of course can't diagnose without proper exam, but pain with radiation to armpit may be a sign of inflammation and/or infection. Painful breast cyst or referred pain from chest or lung. See your doctor!

been having this brief throbby pain on the side of my left breast and under my armpit for months now. im 19. weird?

Weird not serious

Axilla
Probably nothing serious though. There are muscles, ligaments and bones under the breasts and in the armpit. This is the most common cause of such symptoms. It's best to have an exam to be sure. There may be some exercises or stretching that may help.

I have a pain in the far left side of my chest almost under armpit. Could it be breast cancer?

Mastalgia

Open-uri20130331-26026-deibg
Breast pain is not usually a sign of cancer and is more commonly related to hormonal changes or simple mastalgia. however, You should be seen by your surgeon to help figure out what is going on also imaging with an ultrasound could be helpful and or mammography this could be related to gynecomastia

i have this pain that starts under the armpit the upper part near the breast on the left side only my tells me i have a hitial hernia and neck pain.?

Possibly hernia

Neck_pain
If you have a large hiatal hernia, also known as a paraesophageal hernia, it could be the cause of your symptoms. An upper GI contrast study would be able to tell how big the hernia is.

I have persistent pain in left breast burning in sensation,somehow pain in armpit,left side of back, left arm and pricking pain medial to left breast?

Complicated case

Persistent_pain
It looks like you are having a neuropathic pain from the distribution of your pain. In any case your presentation is a bit concerning and advise you to see your family doc so that you can get the assessment and treatment. Best wishes .

Dr. Jennifer Lang answered:

i ve small pain in my left breast,left armpit & back(left side). can dis b a symptom of breast cancer(no cancer history in my family) i am 21 female?

Very unlikely

Breast_cancer
It would be extremely unusual, but not impossible, for this to be a breast cancer. Any persistent symptom in the breast, and certainly any mass, should be examined by a doctor. You may need to have an ultrasound of the area done. It is always better to look into these things than ignore them.
