I keep hearing ticking sound from the center of my chest. Should I be worried or am I just being paranoid?

Perhaps hearing your heartbeat? More importantly, can others hear this ticking osund from the center of your chest?

In brief: Get a hearing test

Just kidding.
I have no idea what you could be hearing. The question would be does anyone else hear that sound. If you had a valve replacement, then there could be a loud ticking from your chest. Is it occurring at the same time as your pulse? If it is truly coming from your heart or lungs, a doctor should hear it with his stethoscope. Have you lost your watch recently? Jk.
