Get eval: At 22yo unless you have some family history there would not be a high probability or cancer or lymphoma, and it is good you do not smoke. Get an evaluation by the doc and get your fears alleviated and at the same time get treated for what is causing you to be short of breath, etc.

Infection?: You probably have a lung infection or asthma problem. The risk of lung cancer or lymphoma is low. See your doctor and get checked as soon as you can. A chest X-ray could help tell what you have. Good luck!
