I felt like tear in left underarm pit & twinge on the negative part of the rep, want to know weather it is a tendon strain or a tear ?

Hey Doc, I was doing bench presses not heavy weight today. I felt a twinge not like a tear in my left underarm pit. I was able to complete the rep but was uncomfortable. I felt the twinge on the negative part of the rep. I was wondering if it could be a tendon strain or a tear. any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for query,
It seems that you might have sprain on the left shoulder joint,while movements your shoulder muscles might have spasm giving you discomfort.
if there is more pain while movement or restriction of shoulder movement then having chance of tendon or ligament injury,
ok and bye.
