Question: Lung Pain

 cryssha - Sat Jun 19, 2004 10:22 pm

I have been having some upper back pain that feels as though it's not my back but inside, almost my lungs. I am a smoker but only for seven years. I'm very concerned that it's something I should discuss with my family doctor. Do you have any suggestions?
Thanks, Crystal

User avatar Hi!

Does your pain have any relation with your breathing? Like, does it increase or decrease with breathing or coughing? How often do you have it, and how long does it last? How severe is your pain? Can you describe your pain?

Are you aware of the hazards of smoking and benefits of smoking cessation?
