I have a pain behind my left shoulder blade along with popping

Resolved Question:

I have a pain behind my left shoulder blade along with popping in my shoulder when I rotate it. It's not excruciating, but I want to see if it could be serious. I do work out with weights a few times per week. Part of what I do is 3 sets of 10 chin ups. I do that 3x per week as well. Could this be causing it?

Thanks for the question and coming here. I would like to say that this can be due to muscular tear & spasm but very important to investigate or rule out possibilities such as shoulder dislocation or minor fracture, labrum tear in shoulder, degenerative joint disease like osteoarthritis. I will highly advise to see your physician for examination and tests such as x-ray shoulder joint or MRI might be needed. It is important to have early evaluation.

Do you think it could be something serious? I have a fear of cancer, so I'm always afraid of things like this.
Expert:  Dr. Amir Javed replied 1 year ago.
I am not concern about cancer to be honest here unless there are risk factors such as family history of cancer and some other typical symptoms. I will suggest to see your physician for evaluation and tests to rule out the possibilities which I mentioned above.

I have a physical scheduled in to weeks. Do you think I can wait until then?

As far as cancer, I did have mild lymphendopathy in my neck a month and a half ago from a ct scan. The ct scan of my abdomen was normal. I had a needle biopsy of a small (0.7 cm) node on my neck and it was benign. My blood work was also normal. Based on all of that, do you still believe its not cancer?

I'll be going to get it checked out at my physical.
Expert:  Dr. Amir Javed replied 1 year ago.
Yes you can wait and see your doctor in two weeks time but if pain is severe or increasing in intensity or constant then highly suggest to see your physician early or visit ER. I will suggest to avoid doing heavy exercise until see your physician due to risk of more damage.
