No, not Realy: Pain in the back with movement is usually linked to posture of the spine or ribs. Cancer at your age is usually found within the breast, and the testing you have undergone already is reassuring. Continue to be medically examined for your concern of cancer, but seek a musculoskeletal physician to help with your chest wall pain.

Not cancer: The examinations you received would have found spread of breast tumor to the spine. Put your mind at ease about that.

Unlikely, unless: Someone already has had breast cancer. Shoulder pain may be due to rotator cuff problems, or arthritic conditions.

Very unlikely: Those two exams should be very good at ruling out tumor in the spine. Consider seeing a physical medicine specialist for evaluation and treatment.
