I have felt some back pains here and there over the last few days. Today it's gotten much worse, and has spread to my whole back - upper, lower, and mid area. Sometimes it feels achey and sometimes I feel some sharp pains on one side or another. I haven't done anything out of the ordinary. Yesterday I went for a run and my ribs felt very sore afterwards.

I'm terrified I have cancer that's spread to my bones. I feel good otherwise, so I don't know if this would be the case if I really did have cancer. HELP!! I've heard too many stories of people preseenting with simple back pain that turns out to be metastatic cancer.

Any reassurance woudl be greatly appreciated!!

Cancer does not spread so quickly or so generally.  It sounds like stiff muscles due to either posture, or tiredness or who knows what.

I have suffered from pretty much every kind of back pain (had several MRI's etc) and have known a ton of people who suffer from back pain.  This is probably one of the most common human ailments after the headache.  It goes along with being human.

Maybe a check up would give you peace of mind.  It helps to have a doc check you out and make you feel silly about your fears.

THANKS SO MUCH for you reply. It's  a help to know that if it were cancer, it wouldn't suddenly present as all over back pain and acheyness. There is one area - on my right side, behind my ribs, that hurts inparticular - so, of course, I'm worried that that is the cancer and the rest of the acheyness is a byproduct of that...

I never get back pain, so feeling something like this is quite scary.
