Intermittent Upper Back Pain Cancer
By itself, no: Many people have back pain; so back pain by itself is not a sign of breast cancer. However, if you have a history of breast cancer or if you find a lump in your breast or axilla (armpit), then you should check with your doctor since breast cancer frequently travels to bone. If the backpain persists, do go see your doctor (not necessary for breast cancer, but to evalaute also for other reasons). ...Read more

Chest pain: I would never say that the possibility of cancer in a smoker should be dismissed. If the pain doesn't resolve then see your dr. I'm not sure what your smoking history was. If the pain continues you should get it evaluated. If you're coughing up any blood then see a physician soon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Chances of lung cancer?-shoulder, upper back pain and sometimes a mild pain when I take a deep breath(left side)
Average: What you are describing does not raise specific concern for lung cancer and points more to chest wall irritation which can be from muscle strain, sometimes viral infection or exposure to inhaled irritants. Smoking is the major risk factor for lung cancer, and anyone over the age of 55 who has been smoking for at least 30 years (varies by amount) benefits from routine lung cancer screening ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Sounds muscular, but: I would still see your PCP to discuss cancer screening possibilities, have a full physical, and discuss smoking cessation options. The sooner you quit, the lower your chances of cancer, and the more likely your lungs will return to pre-smoking health! Good luck ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Uncertain: Usually lumps at this age are fibroadenomas but it's prudent to discuss your concerns with a physician and mother. Age does not preclude you from having a more serious diagnosis. It might be useful to speak to your mom regarding her diagnosis and determine if there is family history of cancers which can also be useful in stratifying your risk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Get really examined: Many doctors forgot how to examine a patient properly and depend on MRI and ct scan to give them a diagnosis made by some one else. Some one must examine your back and press on all the bones and joint areas and they will find the spots that are causing the pain. Ligaments get damaged and need to be repaired.Prolotherapy can do that and a prolotherapist can help you. Visit www getprolo.Com ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I am having upper back pain that comes and go, and blood when i blow my nose. I do not have a cough. I am 25 and i don't smokecould I have lung cancer?
Almost certainly not: I don't think you have lung cancer at all. Back pain can be due to many things (including posture, very large breasts, etc) and blood when you blow your nose is probably due to a polyp. Obviously you should have it checked out if it's a lot. But at your age and with no smoking history, lung cancer would be very low on my list. As for bruising and weakness, you should probably have a blood test. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
