I have been having chest pain and pressure for the last seven months that started with an extreme attack with nausea, sweating, high heart rate, chest pressure, jaw pain, and back pain that lasted for ten minutes. This has happened thrice in the last seven months. I went to the hospital, but they could not find anything wrong with me. Since that first attack, I have had almost constant chest pain, the pressure that gets worse in pulses over minutes and then goes down again, sometimes ultimately going away for up to a week before returning. For the last few months, I always have had a cough and struggle to breathe, it is getting worse over time, and my doctors have given up, including my specialist.
I can always feel pressure on the right side of my chest around my nipple area. I can feel a lot of large lumps around there that have got more prominent over the last few months. I had an ultrasound six months back, but they could only see swelling or lumps. I can feel around 30 or more nodes that are quite large and painful when pressed, with the smaller ones not being painful to push on. They are complex and not moveable.

Thank you for your query.
I understand your concern. I have seen a few patients complaining of anterior chest wall lumps and pain in the areas. Many of them have a condition called multiple neurofibromas and which are benign swellings in the subcutaneous plane that cause pain and discomfort. I am not sure if you have a similar situation. These lumps can be single or multiple. Ultrasound scans, CT (computed tomography), and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) can help to see the structures more clearly.
I hope this has helped you. Thank you.
