Customer Question

Hi, I noticed a dent in my arm two weeks ago. Kinda freaking out about it. I wish I could post a picture....
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: It looks like indentation in my bicep, there is no pain, and I don't believe I ever injured my arm in that area. And my left arm is completely fine
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Doctors generally expect a deposit of about $34 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

That is interesting

Did you get an injection of any type in this area?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No injection, my vaccine shot is on the other arm that is normal. No bruise, no tear, no pain whatsoever, it just appeared two weeks ago.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.

This is strange. It looks like you have atrophy of the fat in the arm. We all have subcutaneous fat. Yours is atrophied or wasting away.

I don't know why but you need an ultrasound to make sure there isn't some type of growth pulling on the growth
