Would lung cancer cause mid-back pain when only laying down? Or is it just muscle or disk pain?

No. Probably it could be muscle or spaine ,see your doctor to have evaluation and CT.
Muscle more likely. Not that it can not happen, but back ache as the presenting symptoms of lung cancer is uncommon. It is more likely due to musculo-skeletal issues.
