Detailed Answer:


Please give additional information for me to assist you better:
Did you do any exercise or any planned work or sudden eventful movement that strained on biceps?

Any direct trauma?

Any discolouration of skin?

Any increase in size?


Painful movements?

Any other history?

Any medications?

Awaiting for your detailed feedback.

Please post photos if any change in the area as mentioned above.

Till then keep the forearm in a sling for complete rest.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
