I am 17, I have been having Thoracic back pain for the last 2 years or so..I never thought anything of it.
I had a blood test done because I was sick once and it was all fine except some level was a little high, but I had recently broken my knuckle and was growing alot at the time so the doctors nailed it down to that. But now I am finding out that it can mean that I have bone cancer...or spine cancer ???
The back pain used to come randomly..maybe once every month or so and I would just crack my back and it would go away for another money or few weeks, I only ever felt this happen when I was sitting with bad posture, which I do about 6 hours a day on average, sometimes more..sometimes less. The pain is now staying there, coming and going every 10 minutes or so but Its not getting better after a week, infact kind of feels worse.
I have extreme anxiety and its not the pain that keeps me away, its thinking I have a spinal tumor. I have no other symptoms besides the pain that is basically halve way down my spine, the pain is mostly 2cm to the left of my spine...sometimes it is on the other side (right) I haven't felt any pain in or on my spine.
Anyone know what this could be ? I dont seem to have a very bad posture when standing or kyphosis or anything...I'm killing myself over the worry, just 2 months ago I got a brain CT scan because I was convinced I had a brain tumor, turned out to be a sinus infection, all was fine.
Thankyou all in advance.
