angina pain
Does angina pain radiate to the breast, as if one is having breast pain? i have done x-ray and scanning of the heart, it did not reveal any disorder in the heart. i have been having this pain for some 7 years now.

If one has cancer of the breast how long can one live if not diagnose?

Dear Happi
Heart pain would not really radiate to the breast tissue itself. You can examine yourself for breast cancer.

However this may be harmless breast tenderness or mastalgia - go for a mammogram, and if that is clear, try taking Vit B 6 100 mg per day and anti-inflammatories when it is painful.
