After eating dinner earlier tonight I had a sharp pain below my breastbone that radiated to my back. It scared me. It lasted between 5 and 10 minutes.
Of course I went looking online for a bunch of causes of pain below the breastbone. GERD, gas, peptic ulcer, pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer, gallstones, etc. were some of the conditions that I found. I truly hope it is not any type of cancer.
I am 23 years old and was wondering which conditions are more probable to have.
