Hi, I have a full thickness bicep tear at the shoulder. Is there usually swelling, discoloration & visually disformaties?

Hi, I have a full thickness bicep tear at the shoulder. Is there usually swelling, discoloration & visually disformaties?

Yes : There is frequently swelling and bruising if the long head of the biceps tendon tore at the shoulder recently. The biceps muscle tends to ball up closer to the elbow called a Popeye deformity. The swelling and bruising will go away but the Popeye deformity will remain unless it is surgically corrected which isn't necessary unless there are other injuries like a rotator cuff tear. ...Read more

Sunburn: Do you like your skin nice and crispy, or the type that just melts in your mouth? You charred your shoulder recently and while we think that might be just be just fine for a steer that we intend to consume we do not think it's fine for humans. I assume you don't engage in cannabalism. Use plenty of hi SPF sunscreen oil-base. For the burn, sulfadiazine. ...Read more

Hello, is it possible to have a fully torn bicep tendon  (@ shoulder ) with no pain,discoloration,swelling,visually,no sensitivity to touch?

It is possible: The classic presentation of a long head of biceps tear @ the shoulder is feeling a pop in the front of the shoulder, followed by some swelling and bruising. The biceps tends to bunch up down by the elbow (Popeye deformity). I have had patients who have a torn biceps but never experienced the classic presentation described above, so it is possible for you to have a fully torn biceps without this. ...Read more

Soreness: If there is no recent injury like a sprain to explain your symptoms, it's possible that the problem is tendonitis especially if shoulder motions produce pain. I recommend a trial of cold alternating with warm applications and,if you can take them, anti-inflammatory medications like Advil or Aleve(with food). If symptoms persist or worsen see your physician or an orthopedic specialist. ...Read more
