Dull ache pain on bottom of shoulder blade but internally. Deeper that just bottom of shoulder blade? Lung cancer or what!?

Lung cancer unlikely: Lung cancer will be extremely rare in 26 year old female, though not entirely impossible. I suggest you see a doctor in office to get a physical exam and have your shoulder pain evaluated. If persists or disabling, may get an imaging study. ...Read more

Lung (Definition)

Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more

I've been having dull pain (like i need to pop back) in left shoulder blade when walking or not slouching. Is this lung cancer, angina or neither?

I've been having dull pain (like i need to pop back) in left shoulder blade when walking or not slouching. Is this lung cancer, angina or neither?

Likely neither,,: Lung cancer is highly unlikely at your age, and angina is usually a more intense pain that often has dyspnea or shortness of breath with it and usually comes with exertion. Your obesity and likely your sitting and posture habits might have more to do with this. It'd be wise to see your doctor about an exercise plan and possibly posture exercises along with a general exam. Good luck. ...Read more

Tic: Lung cancer is painless. So that's not it. You are describing an nervous tic that has more to do with fear than fact. If you can consider cessation-that would be good but it will not stop your apprehension for at least 5 years. Consider Yoga, or some other calming activity. Exercise helps almost everything.Be sure it is safe for you and the go for it! ...Read more

Pain on touch on rt shoulder blade and when i bend my neck ~ 2 months. Chest CT clear, seldom pain in rt shoulder also. Am a smoker, lung cancer?

Pain on touch on rt shoulder blade and when i bend my neck ~ 2 months. Chest CT clear, seldom pain in rt shoulder also. Am a smoker,  lung cancer?

Not likely: Not likely lung cancer. Sounds like muscle-skeletal pain, ie muscle sprain. If it persists for a few weeks then it warrants a doctor visit. Your ct scan is normal so this is less likely lung cancer. Lung cancer doesn't make you hurt upon touch. Smokers have a 20 fold risk of getting lung cancer. But that risk goes down significantly if they quit for about 5 years. ...Read more

Rule out nerve pain: If it's not cardiac related and you didn't have a recent trauma it is probably not a malignancy I wouldn't worry about tumor with this presentation I am concerned that you have an impingement of a nerve or the major nerve network (brachioplexus ) which is a network of nerves into the arm shoulder another possibility is that you have a pinched nerve or vertebral problem in your neck ...Read more
