In the past six months i had a chest pain.

At the beginning i though i had lung cancer but that's the only symptom i had.

The Pain appears at random points, I used to smoke stopped 5 month ago

I can take full breathing in and out and it doesn't hurt. As i said i cant control the pain it appears at random points sometimes stay for 2 minutes sometime 1-3 hours

What could it be

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities include GI infections/ inflammations, pleuritis, lower respiratory tract infections, chest wall inflammation, injuries/ trauma, neuro-muscular causes, growths/ masses, referred pain from other regions etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by an internist initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
