My spine area above my bra feels like a have a string tied tightly around my spine it hurt to breathe,cracking ribs don't help. A lot of pain in area

See your doctor: If this is persistent or progressive or recurrent, need to get checked out. Either way, you shouldn't be in pain in that area, and we can't help any more than to say see your MD and follow recommendations for x-Ray or whatever's needed, after a thorough examination. Could also be simple as a pulled spinal muscle, but your note concerns me for even a possible vertebral fracture! ...Read more

Soreness and discomfort on side and bra line area. Did self check and no lumps, but pressing into the muscle there does seem to be a knot. .

A knot is an area: Of increased muscle contraction. These are not uncommon in the muscles of the anterior and posterior chest due to lifting, carrying etc. You could either go to your doctor to have this confirmed or start with a massage therapist who, with the right degree of pressure, might compress and massage the muscle knot and relieve it. If that doesn't work, then you must see your Doctor. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Left side pain for a month now. Starts at my bra line, goes down to bottom of ribcage, radiates to back. Heat makes worse. Spleen area. Ultrsnd was OK.

Chest discomfort: Have you had a cough? Chest xray? Perhaps the discomfort is from the rib cage and a pinched intercostal nerve or irritated/inflamed chest wall muscle.

I have been told I have stenosis L3 with ovoid haemangioma I also have chronic pain in the thoracic area about where the bra strap is standing painful?

Back pain: Spinal stenosis is common at the lumbar 3/4 level. The cause is usually overgrowth of the ligaments and facet joints. The hemangioma is not the cause of the pain and likely asymptomatic. Pain at the bra strap is around the thoracic level T6/7. Physical therapy or chiropractic care may resolve the pain. See a neurosurgeon for evaluation and treatment. ...Read more

Why do I get itchy around the chest area when I haven't exercised in a long time? Is it because of my tight sports bra or something else?

Why do I get itchy around the chest area when I haven't exercised in a long time? Is it because of my tight sports bra or something else?

Exercise itch: My best guess is that it is suggest the sweat, which may or may not be obvious. It doesn't have to drip off you to cause an itch. If your in good shape (exercising regularly) you produce less sweat than when you are out-of-shape or deconditioned; in this case your body is more stressed by lower amounts of exercise. I assume the sweat is after you stop. If so, then just shower immediately. ...Read more

Small, sore lump in between my ribs directly below my bra. What could it be? It allso hurts across that area with pain that spreads when I laugh.

Hard to say: If you have a soft tissue lesion anywhere that you have noticed, it bears observation. Lesions that are increasing in size, especially rapidly, or those associated with increasing pain, are concerns for malignancy. A painless mass which is constant, unchanging in appearance, and unchanged over time is likely benign. Lipomas are the most common soft tissue benign lesions; common and benign. ...Read more

Hello i have pain in breast area and side of left breast swollen. Back pain as well. I have been wearing tight bras but still doesn't explain back pain?

See your doctor: Pain in your breasts may be due to several reasons: hormonal disbalances, fibrocystic changes, large size (which may cause back pain), not well fit bra (maybe your case), masses, etc. The only way to sort through possible conditions is to get evaluation by your doctor who may also advise you to perform other studies (X-ray, sonogram).

I feel a little lump by my bra strap, armpit/breast area... Like top of breast into arm area. Doctor said no big deal. Pain if pushed on & w/cycle?

What's his diagnosis: You can have an extension of breast tissue that is shaped like a tail that points up to the armpit. You might have a breast cyst in that area, that changes with your cycle. That area might be hard to image with a mammogram, but an ultrasound might show. Any painful lump should be checked. High caffeine intake can cause more breast cyst pain as well. Consider a recheck or a 2nd opinion. ...Read more
