Chest pain is any pain that is felt in the chest. Chest pain may come from many parts of the chest including:
- the heart
- the lungs
- the oesophagus (food pipe)
- bones – including your ribs and sternum (breastbone)
- the abdomen (stomach) – the pain is felt as being in the chest due to a complex network of nerves and skin.
All chest pain is considered to be heart-related until proven otherwise.
