Chest pain beneath breast, triggers on sitting down or leaning forward, eases on changing position. Serious?

Hello, I ve noticed I experience a pain in the left side of my chest just beneath my breast , I only experience this pain when I am sitting down and slouched forward, the pain is dull but gradually becomes discomforting enough to the point to where I must change my sitting position and it goes away. Is this something serious? What is it?

You need to get an xray chest done to see if there is any thing is the matter with your lungs. Also get a usg abdomen done as some times certain abdominal conditions can also cause this kind of pain. Consult a gastroenterologist to rule out hiatus hernia or diaphragmatic hernia.
