In brief: 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.

In brief: Maybe a neck mri

The symptoms you describe could be radicular in nature.
Talk to your doctor about getting an MRI of the cervical spine.

In brief: May notbe

The fact that the ct is clear makes it very less likely it is a lung cancer; i strongly recommend quitting smoking;.
