The differential diagnosis of shoulder pain and restricted motion includes primary or metastatic cancer. Common cancers, such as breast, prostate, thyroid, lung, and renal, frequently metastasize to bone . Bone metastasis is rarely asymptomatic, rather triggering refractory and persistent bone pain. Osteolysis is accompanied by increased bone fragility and pathologic fractures. These typically occur in weight-bearing bones such as the femur or pelvis. Breast, lung, and renal metastases cause extensive bone destruction and pain .
