Hi Krockrn,

The pain you feel is due to either a neurological or musculo skeletal problem. For example a costo-chondritis. You need neurologist or orthopedic consultation and your pain may be managed by analgesics, physiotherapy and counselling. Usually cancer never presents with such pains. so no need to worry.
