Cardiac or lung: 26 year old man with shortness of breath could be anything from anxiety to pulmonary or even cardiac condition. It is important to be seen by your doctor who will ask you several questions regarding the situation that provoked the shortness or breath and other associated symptoms and will examine your heart and lungs and may recommend EKG as well as breathing test to narrow the diagnosis
