Back pain : Lots of possible causes. Go find out cause, treatment. Should you worry, no. Should you be prudent, yes. See your GP or go to Urgent Care (not ER).

Not really: Condolences for your loss. While back pain is a common problem, it is not that common that cancer is involved as a cause. Since you are young, if your back pain does not resolve in another few days, do see your doc to discover why your back is hurting, and start treatment yo both resolve this, and prevent further problems
