I read your post and I want to tell you to have the doctors check you for Hodgkin's Lymphoma. I just turned 30 years of age and I was diagnosed with cancer and it all started with a persistent cough. I had chest x-rays done, doctors thought it may be tuberculosis, no not that. Finally visited a Pulmonary and he felt a lump on the left side of my neck. I didn’t know it was there it was painless. He ordered a biopsy on it and it was cancer and it all started with a cough that wouldn't go away. I put it off thought I was getting a cold, but that cough wouldn’t stop. Now, regarding the sharp pain under left breast. I just literally had it. I get them from time to time. I thought I was having a heart attack. I googled it and there was a post for the condition called Precordial Catch Syndrome (PCS). Look into it and read more about it. It helped me cause I seriously thought I was having a hear attack. I advised my doctor of it and they just keep record of them. I hope this helps.
