1 Answer:

Hello Fiqh,


Thank you for the question.

Swelling in the chest to the left shoulder, accompanied by coughing and pain when breathing, can occur due to a disruption in the rib cage, but can also indicate interference with other surrounding structures, for example due to rheumatoid arthritis, injuries around the chest or shoulder, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, scoliosis, pleurisy, bronchitis, pleural effusion, benign or malignant tumors around the chest cavity, pneumonia, and so on. It is also possible that disorders of other organ systems, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease or gastritis, also aggravate this condition.


Your condition seems to need to be confirmed again through direct physical examination by a doctor or internist. Additional examinations, such as x-rays, ultrasound, blood tests, sputum tests, etc. can also be done in some cases. Therefore, you should check yourself at the nearest health facility in order to get the best treatment.


Swelling, coughing, and tightness that you feel while you can overcome it first by:

Compress warm your chest while positioned higher
Stay away from substances that might make you allergic
Don't overdo activities
Use a mask, especially when outside the polluted room
Don't wear clothes that are too tight
Eat more regularly variations of nutritious foods
Do not smoke

Hope this helps ...
