I have a chronic dull ache around the left side of my breastbone, which sometimes radiates to my shoulder. What could cause this, and what treatment would you recommend? There are many causes of chronic chest pain. Two of the most common are costochondritis (inflammation of the cartilage attaching the ribs to the sternum or breastbone) and intercostal myalgia (an irritation of the muscles between the ribs). These diagnoses are often difficult to establish because the pains are vague and there are no confirming lab tests.

Defense lawyers produced computer-enhanced photographs yesterday purporting to show the word "Bryan" carved in script less than a half-inch long on Myla Friedman's chest. The defense contends the word was carved by a knife-wielding Bryan Edwards during a life-and-death struggle that led to Edwards' being shot to death. The bizarre twist in Friedman's murder trial came hours before defense attorneys Dennis Cogan and Norris Gelman rested their case after a 3 1/2-week trial before Common Pleas Judge Juanita Kidd Stout, who is hearing the case without a jury.

If you have a few thousand burning a hole in your pocket and you love auctions, you have two items next week on which to bid: a walnut chest of drawers that belonged to an early governor of Delaware and a 50-year-old first edition of Whiz Comics.

The chest of drawers will be offered by Pook & Pook Inc., next Saturday at the second session of a two-day sale at the Ludwig's Corner Fire Company social hall.

Whenever the names Whitney, Rockefeller or Vanderbilt appear in an ad for an estate sale, it is worth checking out. The Elizabeth Whitney Tippett estate sale held at Weschler's in Washington last month was a good example. At first glance the sale appeared to be a typical auction of the contents of a country house. But among the American and English furniture, the silver, the English sporting pictures, Staffordshire figures, gold hunting trophies - and a tribe of weathered cigar-store Indians - was a very rare Pennsylvania painted chest of drawers.

Yes, Dolly Parton says, she has had plastic surgery - "nips and tucks and trims and sucks . . . eyes and chin and back again. " And there's more where that came from in Parton's new autobiography, "Dolly: My Life and Other Unfinished Business. " "It is not only a right but an obligation for a woman, especially a woman in the public eye, to look as good as she can. It's like keeping up a racehorse or a show dog. " So yes, Parton says, she has had her breasts done, too. "I said, 'Do whatever you have to do to make 'em firm, make 'em stand up. "'

Belle might just be the walking definition of "lucky dog. " The 18-month-old standard poodle lives to play catch with her owners. But two months ago, the game nearly killed her. In mid-May, Belle was speeding after a ball outside her home in Townsend, Del., when she impaled herself on a 2-foot-long steel rod. Nearly 18 inches of the rod, which had been attached to a scissor jack holding up a camper, was driven into her chest cavity. "It ran right through her, but she didn't whimper once," said owner Lori Broome.
