hi joy,
First of all I tell you that you are unnecessarily worrying .
looking at the history i think pain in your shoulder is most likely to be due the fall and injury to your neck i.e. cervical spine. do not connect this pain to your breast problem.
Take a opinion of orthopedic surgeon he will examine you and guide you properly.
