A 21-year-old female asked:

Excisional Biopsy: Since the X-rays and MRI are inconclusive, it would be prudent to have one of the lumps removed for pathological evaluation (excisional biopsy). It is likely a benign process, like an angiolipoma, a neurfoibroma, a neurilemoma or a Masson's tumor, but a pathological diagnosis is your best option at this time. Plus, removing the lump will likely make the pain resolve. Good luck.
A 57-year-old female asked:

Infection Likely: I would make sure to have this evaluated by your doctor. Given your medical history and the medications you are taking (Humira), you might have a skin infection that will require doctor-directed care. Your immune system is suppressed due to the Humira, (adalimumab) so you are more at risk for getting skin infections. Get it checked out.

Healing Inflammation: The redness/purpleness of a healed abscess (skin infection) can take a few months to resolve. The skin will remain firm, slightly tender and have a purple/red color for some time after the infection itself has healed. This is the scar tissue healing and settling. If the area back tracks and get swollen, hot and tender again, you will need to see a doctor. Hang in there.
