Provide cure for muscle pain

About a year ago I had a mole removed on the upper right arm because it was itching. Afterwards there was pain in the bicep muscle where the root of the mole had gone down into it. The root area was cauterized by the doctor. Well, that muscle area never got well. Even though the site of the mole itself is OK, there is contimued pain in the bicep muscle. It hurts especially after I do push-ups or other strenuous exercise.Any ideas re cause, treatment and cure?

It could be an inflammatory reaction following mole removal.

As first-line management, you can take analgesics like paracetamol or aceclofenac for pain relief.

You can also apply warm compresses also.

If symptoms persist better to consult an orthopedician and plan for an MRI scan.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
