Pain on lower lung area?

I'm worried it may be cancer, as I used to live with a mother who smoked all the time, inside, outside, and even in the car. The pain increases when I run. My dad won't bother taking me to the doctor because I have no health insurance, so I'm very scared. Even if I do ask my father, he won't take me.

my stepfather is a dr he said if youre young below 30 its probably not cancer but if over 30 it maybe cancer. he said it's most likely plurisy. which is inflamation of the lining of the lung. if it persists for another week then you need to see a dr.

Maybe a walk in clinic or is that the same thing basically? (You could borrow money from a friend but pay them back!! Just explain what's wrong)

Pleurisy, pulled muscle, diaphragmatic hernia, cracked rib.... These are all possibilities. Do you qualify for Medicaid? If you're in a good size town or near a city there are free clinics. Check the Internet for help in your area.
