HI thanks for your question You are 18 years old and your chances of having bladder or prostate cancer are very very less.However you can have infection of prostate called as prostitis.The second possibilities is of urinary tract infection.Back pain could be due to UTI.I would suggest you to consult a physian who will be able to evaluate you for your symptoms and accordingly he/she may prescribe you antibiotics in case of UTI.You may need to get your urine examination and urine culture done to confirm or rule out UTI,as a cause of your symptoms.
Hope this answers your question.
