Growth on lung and severe pain in shoulder and down arm?

Where and how large?: Most "growths" in the lung are unable to cause pain because the lung has no pain nerves.

Hi Doc here are my symptoms pinching pain in back of shoulder, shooting pain in shoulder and down arm, pain in front of shoulder also can been 5 month?

Seek consult: I would recommend you see either an orthopedic surgeon or a neurosurgeon as you may have a problem with a disc in your neck. I sounds suspicious for a "pinched nerve" or herniated cervical disc. A physical examination and possible a MRI would be helpful. Short term medication and physical therapy are often all that is needed for resolution of your symptoms. ...Read more

Can cervical radiculopathy cause pain in shoulder, arm, side of chest and sometimes hand? But no neck pain? Most pain is inner arm. Mostly when i move.

Strange but true: Cervical radiculopathy occasionally can be present without the presence of significant neck pain. That is a little odd when we see it and for that reason deserves to be looked at in detail to make sure something else may not be causing neurological symptoms such as a mass lesion, nutritional deficiency, etc. Emg studies often help answer this question as well.
