Question (02/07/2013):

Title: Pain under left breast and to the left of the stomach.

What could be the cause of pain under the left breast (to the left of the stomach, nearly but not quite to the arm)?

I've had this for several years, never had any cancer (none in family).

Sometimes the pain wakes me at night, sometimes in the daytime too.

Answer:

Thank you very much for your question.

Pain under the breasts may occur due to various physical and emotional health issues.

Probable causes of pain under left breast include:

Flatulence
Angina
Muscle Pinch
Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy
Pleurisy
Costochondritis
Hiatal hernia
Herniated disc in the thoracic spin
Cervical disc disease
Anxiety
Muscle strain
Infection
Trauma

Flatulence is the most common cause of pain under the breast region and to the left of the stomach in healthy individuals.
