In brief: Reflux NOT Cancer.

If chest pain is worse with movement, with Deep Breathing, with Pressure on the Chest = can be inflammation called CostoChondritis; Rx with Local Heat and Ice application or Anti Inflammatory medicine Ointment.
If Heart burn after eating or sour taste associated with Annoying Chest pain could be from Reflux. Try OTC Pepcid (famotidine) or Omeprazole for 2 to 4 weeks. See your MD if not better with above Rx
