sharp pains in left ribs

I have sharp pains in my right rid area it hurts to breath and my breast are tender what can it be

Most likely a subluxated rib. It usually starts in the mid back, and radiates along the rib.

I can affect the costo-sternal junction causing pain under the breast. Look up Tietzes syndrome at C-H.

Not likely but an underlying breast, heart or stomach condition should be considered too.

Good luck.
