Abdominal tenderness and back pain Help


Q: 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!
