I have severe right shoulder pain that gets worse when I cough and radiates down my right arm, causing numbness. Is this likely 2 be lung cancer ?

In brief: Arm pain

Most likely explanation is a herniated or bulging cervical disc.
Thoracic outlet syndrome, Pancoast tumor, & lung cancer are much more rare possibilities.
