What to do if I have breast bone that is also sore and tender. Is more likely that I have thyroid nodule (s)?

If you have tenderness to the breastbone, please see your doctor you may need an x-ray and definitely you need a physical exam to evaluate the problem.

Pain when I lift left arm up above my head feel sharp pain/ pulling in left side of chest breast bone in one area have been coughing a bit cause?

Varies. There are multiple potential causes, and I would not hesitate to be seen for an accurate diagnosis. Among the more common causes are a rotator cuff injury or an injury to the labrum, both of wich are critical to movement in the shoulder. If needed, an MRI can usually show the issue as well.

I have chest discomfort in the center of my chest a little on left. Its about 2 inches above the breast bone. It is tender to the touch. Feels kind of like a sore. It lasted all night at work, but now the pain isnt really there even when I touch the area.

Likely muscular. Hello, if you can really pinpoint almost exactly where the pain is located on your chest (i.e. 2 inches above the breast bone), than it is likely rib pain or some sort of muscular chest wall pain. Do you lift weights or work out? I would rest for a few days, take Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen if it comes back again. It does not sound concerning for heart pain. Hope that helps!
