1. He hit him in the breast (chest) while fighting.
2. His breast (chest) was decorated with ornaments.

Frontal part of the human body, located between the neck and the upper belly (region of the thorax). If there is a common term, applicable to both the male and female breasts, we recommend choosing this common term (e.g., English breast). If no common term is present, the word for male breast (= chest) must be chosen. Not to be confused with specific designations of the female mammary gland, nipples, internal organs (e.g., lungs) or thoracic cage. (Kassian et al. 2010)
