I have a lump deep under skin in the biceps muscle in the lower1/4of humerus. It is soft/squishy. Sono is inconclusive no bruise or lipoma. What is it?

Get it seen: Lipomas are often missed on us because the density of the lipoma is the same as the surrounding fat. That would be the most common soft tissue mass that is invisible on us. Best to have an md look at it. Hard or rapidly growing masses ar more concerning. Biopsy is the only way to know for sure. But a slow growing, soft mass may be watched with a physician if it acts benign. ...Read more

Bicep muscle popped during workout yesterday. Doesn't hurt anymore but there is a lump on bicep muscle now.

Partial muscle tear: Sounds like a partial muscle tear, in which case, there is not too much to do as it will heal on its own. However, you probably should get it checked out by your medical provider. If it is a more complete tear, it may need surgery to reattach, but i would expect more pain and inability to flex your bicep. Rest is the answer for now. Good luck. ...Read more
