In brief: See a doctor

aortic dissection is a life threatening emergency.
unlikely in teens but possible especially if there is a connective tissue disorder. if you have any concern about an aortic dissection, seek medical attention immediately.

In brief: Sure

Typically in the young if a dissection is considered it is related to trauma or a congenital connective tissue disease such as ehler's danlos or marfans.
