One "classic" presentation of metastatic bone cancer is back pain that "tends to be worse at night and may get better with movement" - American Cancer Society.

Googling "back pain worse at night from metastatic bone cancer" leads me to a case study, but I can't find a proposed mechanism for why the back pain is specifically worse at night.

  • Are you asking why it tends to cause back pain or why it's worse at night? If it's the former, the answer is in your link. (Interesting case histories, btw.) – Carey Gregory Apr 28 at 0:09
  • Why is it specifically worse at night? – D.Tan Apr 28 at 0:10
