In brief: Pain from any

Metastasis is caused either by expansion of the vertebrae streching the periosteum, or collapse of the bone.
The mr is very sensitive to marrow changes the precede either of these events. Rarely, an intramedullary (within the spinal cord) metastasis could leave the bones alone and cause pain, weakness or numbness depending on location.

In brief: Tell about your pain

I am happy for you that an MRI does not show cancer as the source of your back pain.
However, you are also entitled to have back pain from a sprain or strain as well as dealing with your lung cancer. Given your history, i recommend seeing an osteopathic physician who practices osteopathic manipulative medicine . Take care.
