  • I hope you went ton dr for some medical advice?!?! They’re probably nothing, but you should get them looked at for peace of mind at least

  • Glad to hear you had this checked out. Hopefully you can get the outcome you want.

  • Glad you got it checked you should always just seek medical advise on all unfamiliar lumps and bumps

  • I was once told i also had a lipoma, but it ended up been benign , but was a lump of a different kind of growth invasive around veins etc… It was slightly more difficult to have removed due to growing around the veins as i left it for over 10 years,(it will never be fully removed now ) as i was told if i was to get pregnant as it was in my ankle they would swell up it would most likely grow back…. Ask for a second opinion… Or a MRI (can be costly to get a deffinant answer…)

  • Good to hear you had it checked and that it was benign !

  • Thankyou Ladies and I finally saw my GP and she told me that its a LIPOMAS which are benign.I might get this removed in the near future and this has put my mind at rest.

  • Thanks for all of your advice and am definitely seeing my Gp this week.

  • Good point June11 – alleviating stress by getting it checked out is a good idea.

  • Like others have commented, please get them checked. Sometimes what is thought to be fat could be something serious. Hopefully getting checked will restore your confidence and eliminate the strss you are probably feeling. If it’s not sore it’s not just a muscle or similar.

  • Always get any lumps or growths checked out by a G.P. at least if you notice it has appeared suddenly, changed or changing, painful, weeping or any other symptoms.

  • Best to get it checked out to put your mind at rest. Always worth getting any lump checked out.

  • Best to go and get the lumps checked by your GP as soon as possible. Your GP will be able to advise you.

  • I would go for a check-up for peace of mind! Best of luck!

  • Any lumps should be checked especially if you are concerned . I have a couple of cysts in my arms and was relieved it was a minor ailment even though it may not go away . I still have to keep an eye on it but at least I have been instructed what to do . Go for a checkup anyway .
