Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
That is very unlikely. Pan coast tumor is a mass on upper part of the lungs causing pressure on the nerves. It typically causes narrowing of the eye pupil, lack of face sweating and drooping of eyelids. Not just upper arm and neck pain. The symptoms will not improve with chiropractic adjustment. Hence, your husband likely has cervical spine arthritis or herniated disc problem. He should get a MRI scan of the spine for further evaluation.

The recurrent pain is likely due to the compression of the nerves at the cervical spine root which can get worse with physical activities. He will need physical therapy for 6 to 8 weeks and also spine imaging ( MRI for example) as part of further management. Best wishes
That is correct. This is not pancoast. Best wishes
