New User, Becoming EHEALTHy
i have had a dull pain well kind of pain its not sore more annoying for the last few months but the last week it has been more consistant.

it doesnt hurt when i breathe in/out or sneeze or if i lift objects nothing seems to trigger it at all its just kind of there any ideas what it could be?

i got a chest scan today but the results wont be in for a week and a week is a long time when all you can think of is "i might have cancer" any help would be great!

Dull, constant chest pain, that isn't triggered by something, and is not relieved with movement or change in position, is suggestive for pain due to lung malignancy.
The true answer can be given only by performing lung CT scan.
Usually, the initially manifestation of lung tumor is constant cough with breathing difficulties.
