Brief Answer:
Yes it can cause pain under breast and scapula.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
In case of tendonitis or shoulder impingement syndrome the pain can be referred to under the scapula or in the chest wall. The muscle pain can be there. Doing a hot fomentation and taking an oral muscle relaxant can help in decreasing the pain.
Avoid all overhead activities and do not lift any weights from the affected arm.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
