Hi, my name is Sherif and i'm a 22 years old, 6 foot, 140 pound skinny male. I've been very worried since a lot of sites on the internet link back pain with lung cancer. I do have scoliosis, but I've never had back pain like that before. The pain is mainly concentrated in the middle of my back and I got it today right after I woke up. As far as the nodules go, The radiologist said to do another scan in 6 months to check for growth. I found out about the nodules after I went to the emergency room complaining about some minor chest pains that have somewhat went away already. They've done a CT scan, blood work, a chest x-ray, and an EKG.. I've also done an echocardiogram and i am currently waiting for the results.View Thread
