Shoulder Pain During Bench

A friend of mine has percieved pain in the anterior part of his shoulder when he is doing flat BP. He does not experience pain from other exercises.

Anyone knows what might be the cause and how to help fix it?

Perhaps his pecs are more dominant then his lats which would cause an imbalance! that is what I was told was wrong with my shoulder injury. It was a terrible pain that I lived with because I was doing so much chest…It thought I was balancing it out but I guess I wasn’t so I’ve pretty much stopped most of the chest exercises that would do with heavy weights and now I do secondary chest work.
