Back pain is scaring me

Patient

Q: Im 31 years old, i have a pain in my back about halfway down on the right side, its about 1 to 2 inches to the right of my spine. i have had this non stop irritation/ pain for maybe 10 years, non stop every minute of everyday. sometimes this spot will crack n it will relieve it for maybe fifteen minutes, if i or someone rubs thos spot it feels better for a little, but there is like a lump there that kind of grinds when you push on it and it moves around a little, i usually rub it hard with my thumb to make it feel better. recently it seems to be getting worse, used to just be irritating, now its working more toward the pain side of things, have been worried for years, but honestly im a single guy, live alone, health care is so over priced and i simply cant afford, i already work almost 50 hours a week and i just cant afford it, which is a shame that this country is that way. so here i am searching for an answer, please someone help if you can
