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

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

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
