Hi, thanks for writing to HCM. The findings that are mentioned are not serious issues. Propably they might have resulted due to overuse and irritation. You might be having pain in the shoulder at one particular point and during a specific movement of the shoulder.
* avoid overhead shoulder activities (shuttle badminton, cricket bowling, tennis) for a few weeks
* use anti inflammatory medications
* hot fomentation
Hope your condition improves after following these measures. Regards
