Right upper lung pain
Hi, about 5 days ago I started to get a pain in my upper right lung, it started when I was asleep so I assummed that I had slept funny.  But it is getting worse and now pretty much every time I breathe deeply, cough etc I get a shooting pain in my right top lung/ribs.  On a side note I am 15 weeks pregnant, Ive asked about and it doesnt seem to be a normal pregnancy symptom.  Should I get it checked out or just see if it goes?
Cheers

It is unusual for a lung lesion per se to cause pain.
Your symptoms may be because of "pleurisy" which refers to inflamed covering of the lungs, or because of a muscle/bone involvement.
If you do not have cough, fever, or breathlessness, you may like to try pain-killer ointments like diclofenac gel. If symptoms do not improve, you may like to visit your doctor.
A caveat, though. Since you are pregnant, please check with your treating doctor before using any medications.
