Life-Threatening Shoulder Pain

Problems such as benign bone tumors, primary bone tumors or even cancer that spread from other body parts can cause a shoulder to become painful.

Fortunately, these more serious problems represent only a very small portion of those with shoulder pain. But, it illustrates why it is important to get your shoulder checked by a specialist who knows what he/she is doing. If you have not had your shoulder pain checked by a qualified specialist, we strongly encourage you to do so as soon as possible.
