Yes. A  T4 lesion can cause sensory issues from the nipples down.  See a map of the sensory dematomes at http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://d7c2b0wpljtwf.cloudfront.net/var/ezwebin_site/storage/images/media/images/e-anatomy/spinal-cord-illustrations/spinal-nerve-dermatome-anatomy-schematic/2344869-1-eng-GB/spinal-nerve-dermatome-anatomy-schematic_medical512.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.imaios.com/en/e-Anatomy/Spine/Spinal-cord-diagrams&h=491&w=512&sz=70&tbnid=31P24w5wdp9QXM:&tbnh=126&tbnw=131&prev=/images%3Fq%3DT4%2Bdermatome&zoom=1&q=T4+dermatome&usg=__1wakd90xr958ARMGK_pbCJ1-VB0=&sa=X&ei=5OyMTYycKa6x0QHjpqWlCw&ved=0CDEQ9QEwAw
