Molluscum?: Hard to say without seeing it but from what you're describing it sounds like something called molluscum contagiosum, which is caused by a benign skin virus. There are treatments for this but often it resolves on it's own. Take her to your pediatrician or a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis.

Several: You could pursue a career as a medical assistant, nurse, nurse practitioner or physician assistant. All of these professionals can work with, or under the supervision of, a dermatologist.

Maybe: Normally small asymptomatic lipomas do not need to be removed other than for cosmetic reasons. However if you have a lump under the skin that is tender, painful, or growing rapidly it should probably be removed and biopsied. Usually this can be done in an office setting with local anesthesia. An incision is made, the lump is identified and removed and then the skin is closed with sutures.
