Question
I am having an intermittent pain in my left chest today. I am a 3x cancer survivor and last February, I had lymph glands removed in my left neck. A resection was done using the muscle in, you guessed it, my left chest. I am not nauseated, haven't taken any recent falls and have learned to be frightened about any pain around my upper chest or lungs. No history of heart disease. I think the local ER is tired of seeing me because this stuff frightens me. Oh, yes, female 61 yo.
