This is a phrase I saw recently. It disturbed me.

Anytime a patient has a history of malignancy and then develops back pain, it is imperative that metastases (spread of the cancer) be ruled out. While the major risk factor of a history of cigarettes smoking is an obvious one, some patients with lung cancer do not have a history of smoking.

In particular, cancers of the lung and breast seem to go to bone frequently.

When back pain develops as a result of metastases, the pain is a constant pain that is unrelieved by rest or activity. It keeps patients up at night and they cannot find a comfortable position.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or CT scanning can help to establish the diagnosis.
