Throbbing pain under the breast. Pain reaching the back. Cough. All these related?
Hi, I am 22 years old and since about 8 days I have had a throbbing pain under my right breast . At first it did not feel like part of my breast nor my lung and I thought it could be a muscle tension , but then the pain started to get a bit worse reaching sort of near my back and up my breast. I am not sure what would have caused this. I fell over about a week ago but this fall was not that hard. Also I have had a cough for about 5 months now, could it be related to that? Thanks.
Hello, After going through your statement the pain has got connection with the fall because the days of pain followed by injury. Have a complete clinical examination to find out any hematoma (blood collection) or for any painful lumps like fibro adenosis. Needs mammogram then treat the cause - you will be alright. Your 5 months old cough may not have connection with this. Best wishes.
