Can't say...: You understand it is not possible to diagnose his chest pain as heart-related or not, online, without examination or ecg, without complete knowledge of his risks, and in 400 characters. But. With that said, i will say that the odds are, at the age of 24, it's not his heart. Nonetheless, chest pain should never be ignored. Have it checked out.

MD: Heart problem not common in your age group. However, chest pain should always be assessed ASAP if new and not previously evaluated.
