Should I be retests if I still have pain after a chest wall contusion 10 weeks ago?

10 weeks seems long: But it depends on the pain (worse with cough and sneeze; always there: getting worse or just not completely better). Have you taken any medications for it? Trouble breathing? Were you x-rayed at the start? If you were seen by a professional, call them back. ...Read more

When should chest wall and should contusion pain subside? It has now been a month since I was injured, but the pain is making me feel worthless.

A while: It can take a while for a musculoskeletal injury to heal, especially if there's an injury to the neurovascular bundle in the chest wall. That being said, if you're still having the same amount of pain 4-6 weeks after the initial injury then you should be re-evaluated by your physician.

I have a large breast tumor stuck to my chest wall but my breasts are small. Can i still get it operated on?

I have a large breast tumor stuck to my chest wall but my breasts are small. Can i still get it operated on?

Yes, but chemo first: It sounds like you will need chemotherapy. If you have breast cancer, and it is large, your doctor will likely advise you to have chemotherapy before surgery.

I have watched tumors the size of a baseball shrink to almost nothing with chemotherapy! best of luck to you! ...Read more

Uninsured w/varied chest wall pain. Doc says its muscles/tension, that I have a "1 in a million chance" of heart attack, but im still terrified- help!?

Chest wall: Pain is common. Being terrified doesn't help. Try swimming or cardio exercise to reduce chest wall pain and stretches on a pull up bar. Statistically chest pain related to the heart is low in your age group but does happen. Look it at your family. If someone died before 50 from a heart attack you should be concerned, if not - don't be. ...Read more
