Is this a serious injury?


I went for an MRI for persistent shoulder pain. My Doctor didn't explain much about the diagnosis or the seriousness of the injuries. Can anyone tell me if this report from the radiologist is something that is a serious problem(s)? It seems there are several issues. I have read about them but am still unsure of the extent how concerned I should be. It as as follows:

"There is evidence of subacromial/subdeltoid bursitis. Supraspinatus, infraspinatus and teres minor tendinopathy is present. There is evidence of bicipital tenosynovitis. The biceps labral anchor demonstrates a large SLAP tear extending anterior and posterior in the biceps lateral anchor. A posterior-inferior tear is present.

There is fluid around subscapularis tendon.


1) Subacromal/subdeltoid bursitis.
2)Large SLAP tear extending anterior and posterior into the region of the biceps labral anchor with a paralabral cyst superiorly.
3)Bicipital tenosynovitis. No evidence of muscular atrophy is present."

Thanks for your input.
