I am having trouble in my lungs and heart area. It hurts to breath in

I am having trouble in my lungs and heart area. It hurts to breath in. It gives me sharp pains right were my heart is. It is hurting right now and sometimes it feels like something is pressing against my heart and making it feel like there is pressure on it, it stays constant for a few minutes. Also feeling brused. Is there a doctor or someone can tell me a little bit of what the problem might be?? Im worried because i am only 17 and i am having problems.

it could be anything, but get to a doctor and have them run some tests to find out the issue. it could be a muscle ache in your back that is causing this. it will feel like its the heart and it will make you have trouble breathing. do u smoke?

Hi, I have had quinsy several times (5 or 6) and doctors didn t know what is was. I took medication and gargles but it ended in running it s course. The last time i had it, a clinic doctor said oh it s quinsy . He said he s only seen it once before. He took a needle and drained it right there. I felt better immedietly once the presure was gone. Sent me home with a prescription and everything was great. My question, the many times i ve had it and it s run it s course (usually taking a few weeks to clear up), could this have effect on my health in the future like heart trouble and breathing difficulty. Is it possible for it to have almost reached my heart but not quite before it went away leaving scars for a later problem like a heart attack?

Hello, I m 23 years old and I ve been smoking since I was 17, though I quit it a few months ago. I ve been spitting some blood with mucus in the mornings for a few years now but mostly I thought that was from the damage heavy smoking gave. like eroding tissues. but since I quit smoking, the amount of blood got more, I ve started having some serious heart troubles like fast beating or shortness of breath. I ve changed into a healthier way of life, and the coming of the blood stopped for some time. Last night, I lifted a heavy object and had a chest pain, and today I ve spit even more amount of blood, my mucus was nearly red. Is that a tumor in a lung cancer?
