Hello, welcome to HCM,
The symptoms you told are quite indicative of gastrointestinal hemorrhage. Though, the back pain is vague, but, may occur if there is metastasis in bone.
So, from the symptoms, it is obvious that the cancer is spreading to the other organs like gastrointestinal tract and bone.
