What would cause a dull burning pain on left side of chest above breast line and below collar bone? 20 minutes so far. Pcp says heart ok.

A couple of things: There are a few things that can cause that symptom. Regurgitation and reflux probably being one of the more common ones. If your PCP has ruled out the heart and there's nothing else except that prolonged burning then, I think it less likely cardiac.

Could hormonal changes in a woman cause a swollen lymph node in left side of chest  (above breast, below collar bone) for 2 days now? No fever yet.

NO: This should not be related to a hormonal problem. Usually when a lymph node (if that is what it is) enlarges as a response to infection or inflammation of which there can be many causes. It may not be a lymph node. It could be a cyst or an early abcess. If it persists, it needs to be checked by a doctor. ...Read more

Im having sharp chest pains on left side of chest above my breast when i breathe in?

Chest pain: That is unlikely a heart problem as it changes with breathing so one down of the bad things. It could be pleurisy or inflammation of the linings of the lung and chest wall, or musculoskeletal as in the muscles in between the ribs that get stretched with breathing. In any case try advil or aleve or your Ibuprofen and see, and then go see your doctor and discuss it. ...Read more
