Chest pain. Dull but painful. 23 year old female. High triglycerides. 303 last check up. Could that be causing it?

Doubt it's heart

Chest_tightness
Though triglycerides are high it is still very unlikely that its your heart. Heart attacks in 23 y/o very very unlikely. However it is obviously concerning you. You should see your doctor and get it looked into. It could be musculoskeletal, reflux, gallbladder, or several other things.

Costochondritis

It sounds like you're describing costochondritis or Tietze's syndrome. It's a form of rheumatism. See: http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Tietzes-syndrome/Pages/Introduction.aspx

Can fatty cysts be painful? Mine is tennis ball size by left scapula; have constant left back pain & occasional left chest pain.

Yes

Chest_pain
I am assuming you are talking about a lipoma which is a benign fatty tumor. Regardless any mass the size of a tennis ball should be looked into. To answer your question yes it could cause pain. It can be putting pressure on a nerve or structure which could hurt. If its a lipoma then outpatient procedure.
