Lipomas: most likely you are having lipomas, which is a benign fatty tumors. nothing to worry about, unless they becomes painful,pt increased in size. leave them alone, and you should be fine

Next office visit: Lipomas are usually soft, but what you are describing sounds benign, maybe dermatofibromas. Show your physician at your next office visit or earlier if they start growing.

Need to check them: They do not sound like anything serious from your description, but they concern you and no one can know for sure without checking.
