What are the early symptoms of Bone Cancer?

Hi there, Can anybody tell me what are the early symptoms of bone cancer? Can continuous severe back pain be a symptom that can lead to bone cancer?
Where can I get tested for bone cancer in Mumbai, India?

Symptoms of bone cancer include pain, swelling, and/or palpable mass in the affected bones. Weakened bones can sometimes lead to pathologic fractures. Other worrisome signs include fatigue and/or unintentional weight loss. Make an appointment with your doctor if your pain becomes worse at night or is not relieved by over-the-counter pain medications. Your doctor may decide to order laboratory and/or imaging tests such as radiographs, CT, and/or MRI.
Thanks for your response! I'll make sure to get an appointment with doctor asap. As during nights I can't even sleep because of the continuous backache.
