      Okay so I have had a lot of popping and cracking since I was about 17 and now im turning 20 and the popping is still extremely noticeable to the point that when I do bench flies I can feel what seems to bemy bicep tendon sliding over a bone.. I was ddiagnosed with a slap tear in both shoulders and can lift fairly well and thinking of running some human growth and test for my recovery. I have done therapy which alleviated a lot of the pain from doing bench press but still feel a tad limited at the gym. I never get really bad pain just slight and noticeable discomfort and a lot of tenderness in the area where the biceps tendon is and deltoid. I can do shoulderb press with very little discomfort and bench can be a challenge but dips are no problem. Should I continue to train without surgery or should I go under the knife. I really don't want surgury but is it really needed with my condition.

      Hi and welcome

      This was just covered in a recent thread so might be worth having a look there:

      A fair bit of good info, help and advice on this site too so have a good poke around.

      Ultimately it is your body so seriously - get the best professional advice you can, especially being so young. Get multiple opinions too! You only get one body and mess it up and you are stuck with it for life.

      HGH and test boosters may also have some pretty big impacts at your age - I was natural so can't talk from personal experience but know a few folk that it could have perhaps been better waiting a few more years or perhaps until their priorities changed/decided they definitely wanted to go pro. PRP is reporting some good effects helping tears and healing, but if it is a long-standing injury there may not be much than can be done to speed the process as the blood supply in cartilage is pretty minor and it can be very slow to heal otherwise if at all - especially if you continue to use the arm.

      Again, specialists (not necessarily surgeons but sports/movement docs at least) and physios should be able to help you decide what approach to take.
