ANYTHING POSSIBLE: it could be your chest cavity causing the pain,it could be your bra with hard wire causing pressure on the chest area,doubt it is cardiac,since it is not associated with exertion,or physical activity. see your doctor,if pain persisted,or get worst. you doctor can advise how to lose some weight,you are young, and you have your whole life ahead of you,need to stay healthy,good luck

Musculoskeletal pain: Chest pain that is constant and does not change with position and is reproducible to touch at the same time is likely related to musculoskeletal pain or possibly costochondritis. Other causes of chest pain for someone your age is: gastroesophageal reflux disease or heartburn. I would recommend the following: a thorough physical exam by your doctor. He may prescribe ibuprofen or acid-blocker.
