ChesBack pain with cough

I am having back pain when I make a movement of my body specifically on the centre back of chest for last 9 months. I have visited doctors and reports came normal. I was worried from the first day itself that I have lung cancer. I don't know but I started developing a cough and sore throat for past 2 months. I take Ayurveda cough syrup and it doesn't come back for few days but it's not gone. I am now fed up of visiting doctors as reports come normal. I have lost hope considering that I have cancer. Please help me out. I have smoked only for 1 month in my entire life. I haven't done for more than that. I don't drink. Thank you.
