Why am I feeling pressure on the left side of my chest ?

I am a 50 year old male I have normal blood pressure and cholesterol levels and am not overweight (5 7 and 135lbs) For around 5 months I have had a feeling of pressure on the left side of my chest . There is no pain at all , no shortness of breath and no other symptoms whatsoever. Does anyone have an answer or suggestion.
