In brief: Yes
Yes & most get better without any treatment.
Sometimes, back pain can result from a tumor or infection in the spine but even that can be treated or cured. However, pain in the back may have its cause elsewhere like a kidney stone or infection, a GI issue like ulcer or vascular problem like an aneurysm . If a girl, reproductive organ issues can be a source of the pain. Again, most are curable.

In brief: Possibly
Could be if caused by a herniated disc.
Otherwise can cure itself over period of time, often extended. Can usually be controlled with non-steroidal analgesics such as Ibuprofen or naprasin or muscle relaxants. An elastic binder or tens type stimulator can often help. Try and avoid a spinal fusion and get 2nd opinion from orthopedist or neurosurgeon if advised to have one.
