What does fluttering sensation in the left breast indicate?

I am 68 female and recently noticed fluttering in left breast just left of my sternum.. It lasts for under 30 sec. I walk 30 min 5 days a week (fast). And stretch daily for disk issues , Turmeric tincture daily w/ black pepper. It never happens when I am exercising . Most recently I was turning over in bed on to my stomach from my right side and giving a relaxing massage. I wonder if I should be concerned , there is no pain . My resting pulse is usually 55-58 , bp is normal Meds are levothyroxine 50 mcg , lisinipril 5 mg and atorvastin 20 mg. Thanks for your help

Based on your description, it is difficult to predict what could be the cause for your symptoms. However, considering your age, it would be better for you to undertake a mammogram and consult Surgeon with the report for clinical evaluation and appropriate management.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
