Hi and thanks for the query,
This simply means that there are deposits of hard tissue or some masses at the superior and lateral areas of the affected shoulders. this could arise from numerous causes like arthritis and many other autoimune diseases. Definitive treatment would depend on a clinical appreciation, and other tests identifying the exact cause. for now, immobilization of the limb and use of Anti inflammatory drugs and analgesics would be sufficient to control the pain till you wait to see your doctor. Kind regards
