Breast pain. what can be done to treat it?

I have had right breast pain in the upper outer region, I have had 4 manual exams by 4 seperate drs. I am 33 healthy. I have had a breat ultrasound that is negative, bloodwork perfect, 2 abdo ultrasounds, chest ct, contrast MRI , chest xray all come back great but I had an upper gi scope that helped with a diagnosis of IBS-C. *It was so bad that I had caused damage to all surrounding muscles but that is fine but I am stiil having breast pain-no lumps it related somehow??

thank you for your query.
If the clinical examination by 4 doctors in addition to a breast ultrasound is normal, then you are most probably not having any breast condition to worry about.
An abdominal or gastrointestinal condition can cause referred pain to the lower ribcage.
However, pain in the upper outer region is not explained by your GI scopy findings too.
It could be a muscular pain in the abdominal muscles or a pain in the underlying ribs and bony cage.
You could try consulting an orthopedic surgeon as it sounds like more of a muscular pain.
Take care
