Doctor :   I do understand that you may be concerned because you've recently undertaken treatment for cancer. The cause of back-pai n could range from musculo-skeletal, herniated disc, nerve impingement syndrome to metastasis from cancer. It would be wise not to disregard this pain as a simple hip pain and investigate further for any serious problems. An malignant involvement of spine can definitely be identified by an x-ray.
