Too many tests? Your ANA is strongly positive, but despite that, it is a non-specific finding, and so is the elevated esr. These findings may not have anything to do with your complaints of back and flank pain. The provider(s) that ordered these tests will have to try and come up with a clinically plausible explanation.

Multifactorial. You have numerous complaints without a major focus beyond back and right flank pain. The obvious question is how much of this is organic, in the sense that you have some primary medical illness, and how much is due to underlying psychological problems with somaticization.

ANAs not marker for. Anas not markers for cancer. Of course, any undefined pain could be ca, but at your age very unlikely. Your systemic lupus panel does exonerate you from likely connective tissue disease, and your other tests are ok, except for the esr. I would have my pcp get a crp. Esrs in my opinion should rarely be done. If CRP elevated, probably inflammation somewhere, the more likely cause for pain! Read more...

Up back pain for 1 yr. Right flank burning. Elev sed rate. Ana + spec 1:640. Lupus panel neg. Cbc ok. Metabolic panel ok. Serum protein ok. Urine ok?

Get renal studies. This might be nonspecific back muscle pain due to your being overweight or possible something more serious, like herniated disc with nerve compression or possible kidney issue, although kidney/ureter pain would likely be lower. You do have "burning" right flank which still can be kidney involvement. It might be a good idea to see your doctor to get your labs looked at, and an exam to find out. Read more...
