Maybe: In so far as a bad shoulder could lead to altered use of the pectoralis muscles under the breast, then this might be perceived as breast pain. Go into your doctor for a breast exam.

Maybe: Pain in the area of the breast can be from the breast tissue itself, the muscle underneath the breast, or the ribs or the tiny muscles between the ribs. It is possible that shoulder issues could cause pain in the upper breast area. You may need an exam to tell which is going on.
