I've had sharp pain in my back while bending for the past two days. What could cause that? I've had headaches, neck/back pain for the past two years.

Depends.....: At your age it is likely to be muscular in nature. Certain positions can trigger muscle spasms in some people. Try a heating pad and gentle massage. If people have herniated discs the pain can be worse with bending forward, but that would be uncommon in your age.

Upper back pain, pains on touch and when I bend my neck forward, pain in shoulder too, chest CT clear, am a smoker, can this be lung cancer?

Not likely: Not likely lung cancer. Sounds like muscle-skeletal pain, ie muscle sprain. If it persists for a few weeks then it warrants a doctor visit. Your ct scan is normal so this is less likely lung cancer. Lung cancer doesn't make you hurt upon touch. Smokers have a 20 fold risk of getting lung cancer. But that risk goes down significantly if they quit for about 5 years. ...Read more
