Thanks for your query,
lung cancer may be painful if it is in advanced stage and involves chest wall, spine, pleura, nerve roots etc.
pain radiating to left arm, jaws and neck can be anginal pain which needs an ECG.
Otherwise it can be due to lung or chest wall pathology.
I wish if you could go for chest x-ray and ECG as preliminary check ups...

best wishes
