Hi.
Have you been diagnosed with breast cancer?  What stage?
The shoulder and back pain can be caused by a variety of conditions.  It could be musculoskeletal pain.  In the setting of breast cancer, there may be a progressive disease (development of bone metastasis) to cause the symptoms.
It would be best to seek consult with your doctor for further evaluation and management.  For now, you may take over-the-counter pain medication like Ibuprofen
Please post your updates.
Good luck.
