Patient

Q: I just recently noticed a small little lump on the side of my boy friends chest about the size of a small pill. I usually lay on his chest every night while lying down, but after i noticed the lump i got scared and i stop laying on his chest because i didn want to irritate it. Before i noticed the little lump his slightly complained about having chest pain and sometime a hard time breathing. I thought it came from smoking and not eating healthy. Alothough this wasnt often or a daily complain i still had thoughts of what it could be and should he see a doctor. I thought i could be a small mass or boil nuthing major but im also scared because it could be more than what we think it might be and he said it dosent hurt and their no pain but im confused because i dont want it to be life threatening . The little lump or knot itsn that big its on the right side of his chest two inches above the nipple and a inch away from his underpit. Thats why i assumed it being a boil because i haf one a couple years back and it was on the under arm area.
