How tall are you? How much do you weigh? Any weight change? On a scale of 0-10, what is it with 0 being no pain? What is it like? Does anything make it better or worse? Does it radiate to somewhere else? Any other symptoms such as cough, shortness of breath? Any skin change? When you press the area, do you feel pain? When did it start? Is it consistent? Is it getting worse? Are you aware of anything which might have triggered it? Any medical problems Any surgeries? Any medications including over-the-counter pills and herbs? Any family medical history?
