    We have one bicep muscle, but two tendons that attach that muscle to the shoulder. Maybe he meant you were missing the tendon…that could be if you ruptured the bicep tendon. Do your arms look the same? When you flex can you see your bicep muscle? If you can then you do indeed have a bicep muscle. Does the muscle kind of ball up and look like a popeye arm? If it does you may have a ruptured bicep tendon. Why don’t you ask your doc to clarify what he meant, he’s the one that told you. Good luck!
