Hi and welcome to JA!
the organ under the breast bone is esophagus which hurts
you history of taking pain medication for back pain is suggestive of acid peptic disease where reflux of acid from the stomach in the esophagus causes it to hurt
More typically such pain occurs on ingesting the hot and spicy meals
and is relieved by taking antacids
a normal endoscopic examination does not rule out the reflux
and manometric studies are required to document reflux of gastric contents into the esophagus
The polyp in the colon is a clinical syndrome manifested as bleeding per rectum of abdominal pain
can be famililial
single polyp is usually benign and removal can cure the condition
however histopathological testing for cancerous or precancerous cells will determine further course of monitoring and management
similarly testing for famililial polyposis syndromes is also recommended
Other organ behind the breast bone is heart,
the pain originating from heart is also felt across the sternum or breast bone and comes on with exertion and is relieved by rest
