    "Chest" can refer to the body cavity also called called the thorax. It can also refer to the front of the body from the neck to the abdomen. "Chest" can be used as a euphemism for breasts.

    "Breast" usually refers to a mammary gland, mammary area, or the muscles of the chest (as in chicken breast). "Breast" is also used metaphorically for the seat of emotion, nurturing, etc.

    BTW, Mad-ox, it might be better if you numbered these differences threads as it looks as if you're posting the same message again and again.
