Pain under left breast

I have pain from sternum, into ribs just under left breast.  Feels bruised to touch but haven't done anything to cause it.  Hurts to wear bra and hurts to lay on left side.  What could be causing this?

I would see a chiropractor, a good one will take some x-rays and work with you. I have had that feeling, and when I do, it is usually my ribs being "out" when he adjusts me, I am better again.

hi,, i had this same problem. it hurt right on the under wire of my bra and hurt wen i took a deep breath in. i didn't know what it was. i went to chiropractor and they did ultrasonic ultrasound.. something like that. . which is like a shocking thing they put on it. it helped a little they said it was PROBABLY a pinched rib. i didn't think it could be because if i pinched it i would have felt wen i did it. but that's what they said mine was. it just went away with time. good luck and god bless
