These pains occur usually when a patient has been for
some time in one position, sitting or lying, and rises suddenly in a
particular way. They sometimes take such hold of the breast or back
muscles as to make it appear as if some serious disease were present;

gradually produced their cause is often overlooked, and needless
distress of mind caused by taking the pain for that of cancer or some

in future.
