My 15 yr old son is complaining that he feels like someone is squeezing his lung...He has not been sick or gotten hurt there?

In brief: Short of breath?

If so, think about spontaneous pneumothorax (especially if he's tall and thin).
Asthma is a possibility. Have him evaluated by his doctor.

Anxiety Disorder should also be considered if other reasons are ruled out.

mediastinal masses & reflux are also in the differential diagnoses. Anyway agree needs to see a doctor

In brief: Is there a question?

I'm not sure what your question is.
Perhaps you could rephrase it to be a little clearer what sort of information you are after.
