Gastritis, oesophageal reflux disease etc shows pain usually over lower side of left chest or upper abdomen.
It can also cause pain in the middle of the chest.
wat can be done
is it something serious
Since you are not having any other symptoms of disease in your lungs, it does not relate to the lung disease either.
No. It does not look serious from your history.
so wat can be done , how it ca be cured
Let us do it in a systematic way.
First, the symptoms does not show anything serious.
Now, we have to get it examined by a XXXXXXX medicine specialist.
They might advice some blood tests to see if any infection is there or not.
Also an Xray may be advised.
x XXXXXXX to detect what
Once the examination and investigations are done, it would be easier to come to any confirmatory diagnosis.
Xray will be done just to rule out if any infection is present in the lungs.
When a diagnosis is made, specific treatment can be taken to cure this pain.
if lung infection is dected during x XXXXXXX will it mean anything serious?
An infection is the easiest disease to treat at present.
does it has anything to do with smoking
How long have you been smoking?
i hardly take 1 or 2 in a day
from past 2 years
ususlyy 1 and half years
Fine. It is very unlikely to be a cause for this pain.
I understand that you are more worried about cancer.
any precuation that i can take
An X-ray can tell us if there is any growth or not.
Cancer can be occurring to anyone at any time.
so chances are there
is this a sign for that
Signs of cancer in lungs can be any of the following. Cough, sputum with blood, pain, breathing difficulty etc.
It can start without any of the above.
if found early can it be treated
So, in short it can be told only after the proper investigations are done.
Yes. Cancer treatment is much advanced and can be treated if diagnosed early.
But, as of now, you should not be worrying about it.
