Abdominal tenderness and back pain Help

Patient : Hi I am a 27 yaer old guy who have had a tender upper abdomen ( an inch or so below the breastbone)for 3,5 weeks and i also got back pain since 1,5 weeks ago. When i press on the right side i feel that it radiates to my left back. Otherwise i have no problems, no fever or nausea. Normal apatite,urin and feces. I was treated for 2 weeks with a proton-pump inhibitor without any change. Hemoglobin, CRP and glucose was normal Now i am scheduled for a gastroscoppy. I am very afraid that it might be serious, perhaps cancer. I would appreciate an answer!
