Not likely: Most common causes of chest and back pains are musculoskeletal in origin. More severe conditions like pneumonia, CGD, and fibrosis would likely present with additional signs/symptoms. Focus on common causes first before worrying about rare conditions. See your PCP to discuss your concerns and get a more detailed physical exam.
