Pain left side of chest

I have been experiencing pain near the left-center of the chest area. I am not aware weather the pain is chest related ( muscle etc ) or the pain is related to the Lungs. The pain is specific to one point near center of chest but towards the left. Expecially when I breath in and out deeply. Very tensed. Please advice. I have been experiencing this for the past 3 weeks

Hello, I went through your query, pain which can be pointed by finger and increases and pressing the pain point or area and increases on taking deep breaths could be due to musculoskeletal cause (related to chest muscles and bones like costocondritis, strained chest muscle) can be treated with pain killers and proper rest (avoid lifting weights). Please consult physician for prescription.
