Not specifically: It would be strange if that was the only symptoms but if you have weight loss, loss of appetite, shortness of breath to name a few symptoms, this would be more concerning. Another concern would some type of indolent infection. I would discuss it with your GP if ongoing concerns.

No. Heart?: Shoulder pain and sweating could represent pain coming from your heart (angina). It does not specifically suggest a diagnosis of cancer. Pain in the Right shoulder tip can also be coming from irritation of your diaphragm which could be the gall bladder or your liver.
