Chest Wall Diseases: What It is, Types & Diagnosis | SingHealth

Chest Wall Diseases - Symptoms

The symptoms of chest wall diseases are related to underlying conditions, such as arthritis, infections or tumours. This may also result in:

  • Bony pains
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest swelling

In some cases, the pain can be excruciating and can affect daily activities. While symptoms of chest wall diseases and the pain from heart attack may be similar, patients experiencing chest wall diseases tend to have localised pain in the joints of their chest.
