Strain or tear would be treated with anti-inflammatories and rest. If symptoms persist or are associated with a mass or other finding, you should see a doctor.

When I move my left shoulder, my left pectoral muscle hurts. Is it probably okay for me wait and see what happens?
Yes, probably OK: Pain in your pectoralis muscle with shoulder motion is most likely from a strain from recent overuse of that muscle ( lifting, bench press, chest flies, etc.). Mild strains should resolve spontaneously with time for rest and muscle recuperation. The pain should generally reduce gradually but steadily in a couple days. Once full painfree motion returns, it is safe to resume normal activities. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
