Dear friend, welcome to HCM.
did you have injury/ jerk to the arm?
the report says a partial tear of the muscle insertion into the arm bone with some fluid collection (cyst). chronic tear means there is some time delay after the injury/ or the injury is some tiem old.
consult your ortho doc on the issue and ged supervised treatment.
good luck.

take care and keep me posted on your progress.
