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.

 Have head ressure on both sides of  my head muscle spasms n my bicep and numbness in my face
?

Evaluation: The head pressure and spasms could be from a pinched nerve in your neck or spasming in the muscles of the neck. The numbness in the face is a little more concerning though. Is it just on one side? Is it just your lips? Is the numbness constant or getting worse? Regardless, I would recommend seeing your doctor or an urgent care for evaluation now. ...Read more
