Right sided chest pain

Dear Sir

I have on and off right lower chest pain, which is more when I press there. Can this be a sign of heart disease?

(NK, Manipur)

Dear Mr NK

The kind of complaint that you have is not very typical of a heart disease. Nevertheless, if you still want  to rule out the possibility of a heart disease, you need to undergo some tests like ECG, 2D echo, treadmill test, chest x ray etc. Out of these, which test will be more appropriate for you and whether you will need any further test, can only be decided by detailed clinical examination in person. Hence please meet a cardiologist and get examined properly and then follow his advice properly. Hope this helps.
