My husband was diagnosed with Stage lV prostate cancer, gleason 9 eight mos ago. He recently is having severe shoulder pain and it seems as if there is a small tear in his shoulder by his rotator cuff but I'm wondering if this could be cancer-related as he cannot remember when he tore it, although he was out playing golf all week.

Im almost positive it has nothing to do with prostate cancer. He probably pulled a muscle playing golf. Tell him to take a muscle relaxer....Di
