Just telling you the cause with the highest incidence in males is not going to help you.
It depends on mechanism of injury, where the pain is located, does the pain radiate down the legs (if so, where?), what activities/positions make the pain worse, do you have numbness/tingling/weakness of the legs, does the your back hurt when you press on it. Basically you need to be evaluated.
