Not like a heart attack.
I have had what i can feel as a lump in the left side of my chest (I am a man by the way). It is very sensitive to the touch. I went to a clinic and the doctor ordered a mamogram and a unltrasound both which came back ok (no signs of tumor or cyst).
But I know I am not ok because the pain has worsened since that time (6 months ago) and it is even moving. I also have numbness in my pinky finger on my left hand, which i think is associated with what is going on in my chest. I am tired and scared of what is going on with this.
So my biggest question is what type of specialist should I go see? I dont want to find out that they missed something last time and now i have a big problem. Any advise would be greatly appreciated!
