I have a pain under my left breast bone. What does that mean or what could that be?

Assume difficult

Bone
Pain in that area is cardiac until proven otherwise. If not its musculoskeletal. Check your bra tightness, take 2 Alave 2 x per day if u can. If you have pain with exertion, shortness of breath think cardiac, if not its your muscles in your rib cage most likely.

I have a grey coloured discoloratio on my skin just under my breast bone between my breasts. It is not itchy or red or painful in any way.

Multiple causes

This may be caused by a number of different issues. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is darkening of the skin that can occur after minor injury such as rubbing or after a minor rash resolves. Seborrheic keratoses are benign grayish to brownish age or wisdom spots that grow in women commonly in this area. See a dermatologist to evaluate the cause of the discoloration in your case.

Can lots of gas/indegistion be similar to heart attack? Like pain under left breast/heart beat under breast bone or maybe its my pulse. Any advice?

Are you nineteen?

Cardiac
Unless you have diabetes or use cocaine, a heart attack at your age is unheard of. Indigestion mimics heart attacks quite commonly and it's likely that's what you're feeling .

I have pain on the left hand side, just under my left breast bone, when i breathe?

Pleurisy

Extremity-upper-hand
Well localized pain in your chest (rib cage) after taking a deep breath is often due to "pleurisy" a viral infection (cold) that gets into the lining of the lung, producing pain when the inflammed surface of the lining of the lung rubs against the ribs when you take a deep breath. The same thing can happen after a contusion or bruise to your rib cage.

Inside left breast bone feels bruised 31 yr old female no other symptoms or injurys what could it be and should i worry?

Sounds like

Bruise
either inflamed cartilage or thrombosed vein. Try anti inflammatory meds, such as ibuprofen OTC. If that doesn't work, time to see the doctor to exclude unlikely possibility of breast cancer.

i have dull ach under my left breast bone.sore for two weeks after my husband and i had sex. woke up toi It does feel better when i put pressure ribs?

Chest wall strain

Bones
This most likely due to muscle strain in your chest wall. If you have no restrictions, take ibuprofen and use heat and ice to the area for relief. See your pcp or gyn if pain is not resolved in a day or two.

61 year old woman with small lump in left breast along sternum. non moveable , not painful, appeared suddenly cancer maybe? have had cyst in breast before. always odd shaped and always in lower breast. never round and pea sized. lump can be seen from

Hello.

Hello. Can't diagnose the cause of this lump. Breast Cancer usually would not suddenly appear because it takes a while to grow. It could be a lymph node. I don't know if you have been getting mammograms. It would be important to see your doctor. The doctor may order a chest xray, a mammogram and an ultrasound of the lump. Please get it checked.
