Hello. Thank you for contacting HCM.

The pain that you are describing is with highest probability not from the heart nor indicates any problem with the stent that was placed on 2011. The classic angina is more described like a heaviness in the chest and is not affected or exacerbated from the touch. Your symptom may be attributed to a condition related to the mammary tissue or may be of musculoskeletal cause.

I hope I was helpful. Take care
