Why I am feeling uncomfortable in my shoulder?

Hey all I m a 16 year old male who has been weight training frequently for 3 months. Ever since I first started weight training I have always had the odd click and pop in my shoulder joint (the rotator cuff I think) that I hear while bench pressing or doing certain shoulder exercises. At first the clicks and pops were quite infrequent, but now they have made my shoulder feel very tender and sensitive even when I haven t been exercising. My shoulder now gives me discomfort (not pain) when I move my arm away from my body or past the back of my head and the pops occur when I do these. I have an appointment with my G.P in a few days, but was hoping to put my mind at rest until then. The reason I am this concerned with the whole situation is because I am joining the British Army in September, and I m hoping this will not affect my entrance into there. Many thanks! -Lewis

Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
The popping sound you are feeling in your shoulder is most likely to be slight strain in your rotator cuff. There is no injury whatsoever. Occasional popping sound is absolutely normal. You need not worry about your selection in British army.
