Question: Lung Pain
|abayou - Sun Dec 09, 2007 8:56 am||
I have a pain in my lower part of my lung (right side), towards my back. Whenever I jump, move fast, or bend I feel a sharp pain there. I've also been coughing regularly... Could I have a lung infection? Please help.

A lot of factors have to be addressed when discussing chest pain. The lung itself isn't sensitive to pain. However, pain that is related to movement could be due to chest wall (muscle, nerve, skin, bone) causes. If this continues you should seek direct medical attention.
