This is Dr. David

I am sorry you are having pain in the left shoulder

you could have a slipped disks or pinched nerve coming from the spine causing the pain between your shoulder blades and upper back.

you should get an MRI scan of your upper thoracic spine and see if there is a pinched nerve there.

most spots on the liver are benign, like benign granulomas or benign hemagiomas in the liver or benign liver cysts.

RBC counts can often be low and normal. what is more important is that your hemoglobin and hemacrocrit and white blood cell counts and platelet levels are normal.

let me know if you have questions.
