I've noticed some extreme pain in my chest when it is touched. It is above the breasts and in the middle closer to the right. It only hurts when touched but that includes many things such as dressing, even sleeping. Do you know what it might be?
You should have this checked. You may have a deep tissue abcess (abscess) that will continue to "grow" until it becomes visible as swollen tissue. My son had a similar issue recently and what started as a sensitive shoulder wound up being 3 days in the hospital with surgery to drain the abcess (abscess) and remove necrotic (dead) tissue. Dressing, drying after bath, hugging etc. hurt him...and I (being the "wise" mother) poo-pooed it as "nothing" until the goose-egg sized lump appeared on his clavicle.
Abcesses are not dangerous, but they can be painful, and a doctor will know how to treat it.
Sorry, I just read your note again and mine was under the breast. I do have pain at the top also but it is on both sides. It is fibromyalgia. Doesn't sound like what you have. Sorry, I am no help! Good Luck and keep posting, so you can hep others also.
