Pain on rib cage

HI i have been having pain right under my right breast right on my upper ribs If i lift my arm up or move a certain way it will hurt. also to touch it hurts like pushing on a bad bruise. this pain has stayed for a week or two then will stop then will come back again in 6 weeks or so. I also had breast implants a year ago so not sure if it has something to do with that? Any advice would be appreciated.

I'd make a doctor's appointment. There are a number of possible causes, but you need to to be seen by your doctor. It could be an infection from the breast implant, a 'bruised' rib from injury, or something else.
