extreme lower back pain and nodules found on liver

My mom has been complaining of extreme lower back pain for over 2 weeks now.  It started to be painful so she took some advil, then it got progressively worse, so she was prescribed muscle relaxers and peracets.  She's been on those 2 for 2 weeks now and she is still in constant pain and cannot sleep.   So she went back to the doctor and they gave her an MRI.  On the scan, there showed up several nodules on her liver.   They have now told us that she has cancer, but they do not know what kind of cancer it is.   She also said that her vertebrate lit up in the scans as well.   She is going back for a test next week to biopsy this to determine where the cancer has come from.  We are all just very worried bc there are several nodules on her liver, which is making us think that this is something that has been in the works for a while.  She gets daily mamograms (last one in Jan) so we don't think it's breast cancer.  Bc of the lower back pain, could this be bone cancer?  And do several nodules in the liver indicate that we are catching this later rather than soon?  Any insight is greatly appreciated.  Thank you very much.
