Numbness In Bicep
Numbness in my thumb&bicep d/t c5~6hnp for 12months. Many nonsurgical tx being done but not so helpful. Can hnp leave me permanent neuro damage?

I have a large mass on my bicep. It can be felt when pushed it seems to swell and cause numbness in my arm. On my MRI, "no mass was detected"??
MRI can miss masses:
In my experience, the most common soft tissue mass missed on MRI is a lipoma, a benign tumor made up of cells containing fat, which look very like the surrounding fat surrounding on MRI. The thin capsule may not be visible.
Numbness may be due to pressure on nerve. Other tumors such as schwannoma are less often not easily seen on MRI.
A surgeon is often the best person to evaluate these lesions ...Read more

Could be C7 nerve: Tricep pain and pain in the index/middle fingers follow the C7 nerve and the EMG may have been performed too early to detect the problem. You should still have your dr.

A neurosurgeon should be able to help. ...Read more

Why would bicep not flex 2 weeks after shoulder replacement? Any explanation? Also still numb from elbow to thumb, painful nerves.
The musculocutaneous nerve provides the nerve supply to the biceps muscle. If this was stretched and temporarily "stunned' during the shoulder replacement, this can explain the symptoms.
The skin sensation from the elbow to the thumb comes from the "lateral cutaneous nerve of the forearm". This nerve is an extension of the musculocutaneous nerve, so this makes sense too. ...Read more
