Try to relax: I know it's easier said then done but remember that there are many causes for low back pain other than cervical cancer. For your age advanced cervical cancer is rare. I know that you have already had your Pap smear completed and are just awaiting the results and that's fine but I would make sure that you aren't ignoring the many other possibilities that could be contributing to your symptoms.

No: Please wait for your result and don,t panic. If the back pain does not respond to regular over the counter medication,get it evaluated by a medical doctor
