Pain in the area of the shoulder blade has many causes:
-referred pain from the neck
-growths in the shoulder blade itself (usually benign)
-pain from the structures deep to the shoulder blade : ribs and the lungs

From the above it is evident that you will have to see a specialist orthopedic surgeon to examine you and determine the cause
