PFO and chest/breast pain

I was diagnosed with a PFO approximately 2 years ago after coming down with pertusis (spelling?). Was told it was a small hole and nothing to worry about. Recently, I've been experiencing pain along my left shoulder and, specifically, below my left breast. This can be a sharp pain yet it occurs at random times. Also, I've recently been told that I have a small breast lump along the outer part of my left breast. I'm getting this tested next week. Another problem I have...I have had psoriasis on my head and elbows for over 15 years. I recently read that heart problems and psoriasis problems have been linked to one another. I'm 35, in pretty good health, and my BMI is also within range. So....that's pretty much my medical history. :) I'm trying to figure out what could be causing the pain. Any suggestions?

Thanks.
