I am so scared

I'm 32 years old. My mom had lungcancer about 13 years ago. It's a true miracle, but she is still here, thank God.

Now I have a backpain since a few weeks. I can feel the spots, and when I put pressure on them it hurts even more. It's on both sides, different areas, middle and upper back. Feels like the sides of my ribs hurt too when I put pressure on them. I would say it's something with my musscles but I'm just so scared that it is lungcancer. I do smoke.
I gave birth 6 months ago and at the hospital they did a lot of blood work.

Called the primary today but doesn't have time untill september. I'm thinking to go to urgent care tomorrow. I'm sitting on my bed, searching the internet and I'm just sooo scared. Today I found out that my temperature is a little elevated, but no fever.

Re: I am so scared

I think you should seek some medical advice even if it just to reassure yourself!

There are a number of things that it could be- maybe an infection which can be easily treated.... Do you have any other symptoms? Cough?

I wouldn't have thought that lung cancer was a hereditory condition as such but you are a smoker so you need to be sure.

Let us know how you go & try to relax till you have some answers.
