Have severe GERD and hiatal hernia, diverticulitis, shoulder blades in pain. Cancer causing?

I have severe GERD & a hiatal hernia , a current bout with diverticulitis (required hospitalization) and now that I m home am having terrible pain between my shoulder blades (kind of through my chest to the middle of my back), a bloated full feeling when eating very little, severe constipation, continued all over abdominal pain, indigestion, belching , painful hiccuping when I eat or drink. My question: Is this pain between the shoulder blades associated with the hernia or maybe gastritis or something else? & should I be concerned about cancer? (I already plan to have an endoscope and colonoscopy soon.) Thanks.

there are many reasons of pain between shoulder blade radiating from other places. anginal chest pain, gall bladder pain, pncreatitis pain may radiate to that place. your ECG should be done. anyway your gastrointestinal symptoms should be evaluated by colonoscopy and endoscopy. other routine blood examination specially amylase lipase may also be done. consult gastroenterologist.
