No, not Realy: Pain in the back with movement is usually linked to posture of the spine or ribs. Cancer at your age is usually found within the breast, and the testing you have undergone already is reassuring. Continue to be medically examined for your concern of cancer, but seek a musculoskeletal physician to help with your chest wall pain.
