Have ceiling fans with lights energy saving bulb is it safe if I sit away 3 feet so that I don't get cancer?

My upper back only hurts when im on my feet. When I am sitting or laying no pain. Could it still be cancer? My blood work is good.

While the diagnosis of cancer is unlikely it is a possibility. A radiograph of the upper spine may assist in this diagnosis or more likely some type of arthritis (back joints).See 1 more doctor answer
