Hi,

Have you discussed the back pain with your doctor?
If the symptoms suggest a metastasis to the bone, then your doctor would likely have an X-ray of the bones along the spine or better yet a CT or MRI of the area. I'm guessing you used to be a heavy smoker - so if the evaluation of the spine does suggest that there might be cancer somewhere else - a chest CT scan would be pretty helpful.
It would be great if you could get an appointment soon- so the doctor can examine you straightaway.
