In brief: Chest pain

There are several possible causes of your chest pain, but first would talk with your doctor and try and treat the post nasal drip.
Other possibilities are gastroesophageal reflux or even a virus. At this time your symptoms are not representative of any malignancy

In brief: Not likely.

at your age and with your symptoms cancer would not be the likely diagnosis.
But, with such long lasting symptoms in the background and new symptoms now you should consult a care provider for help.
