Chest pain while breathing can be triggered by various disorders, diseases such as pneumonia and injuries involving the lungs and associated tissues and organs. If experiencing such pain, you should see a doctor immediately for testing and diagnosis as it can be a sign of heart disease or lung cancer.

Symptoms

Chest pain can come in various forms and can vary from mild to severe.

People may experience:

Treatment

It is critical that you consult your doctor immediately to identify the cause of the chest pain because different causes have different treatments.

Medication: To handle the pain temporarily, you can take over-the-counter pain relievers. However, depending on the root cause of your pain, your doctor may prescribe other medication such as -

- Artery relaxers
- Thrombolytic drugs
- Blood thinners
- Acid-suppressing medications

Specialists: Your doctor may also refer you to a specialist depending on the root cause of your pain and the severity of the condition.
