Less likely: With the limited information you have given of chronic pain getting more severe over the past two years and nothing else going on in terms of movement or sensory issues I would say the likelihood of a spinal tumor is very very low. It certainly would be beneficial to be seen by a doctor and have at least x-ray studies done to try and figure out the problem.
