Brief Answer:
Left shoulder dimple

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns

You noticed a dimple in your left shoulder. There appears to be no know injury or having pain in the area. There could be loss of muscle mass from reduced exercise or if you gained weight the extra fatty tissue made a dimple from its distribution under the skin. This is a benign problem and nothing to be concerned about.

I hope I answered your question. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions
