Chest Pains

I am 16 years old, and I have been expericing chest pain for about a week now.  I have had them off and on for awhile but not like this. Everyday about 4 times a day it hits me, sometimes minor sometimes severe.
Everyone keeps telling me to see a doctor, but my parents seem to think it's growing pains...
The symptons is a stabbing pain on my chest part on the left side and it shoots to my breastbone, and it's made worse when I breathe in.
What could this be...?
