Hi. Thanks for clear history.

Any pain that is constantly present at one place and for long time is unlikely to represent any heart illness. Your overall description suggests some possibility of muscular pain.

Do you have any swelling or pain on pressing there? If there is no such thing, then you can just ignore it. If you feel any mass there, then please consult a skilled general surgeon.

Let me know if you have more concerns.
