Intermittent lower back pain. Today, had headache in the temporal region. What could it be?

I have been having on occasion in the middle of my lower back pain off and on. The pain only lasts two or three minutes and feels like something is stabing me in the back, today was a little longer like 5 minutes. Today however not only did i have pain in the lower back it seemed to travel up to my head on the left hand side (temporal/occipital area), which throbbed with pain two or three times. Any ideas? Cancer?

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the back that you are having can be related to muscle spasm, sprain, disc bulge, etc. It is not likely to be related to any cancers as such problems are also associated with systemic symptoms like loss of appetite, weight loss, fevers, etc.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
