Syringomas: A syringoma is simply a benign tumor of the sweat ducts. Typically found on or around the eyelids, they can be found elsewhere on the face, as well as the upper chest, vulva, armpits, and umbilicus (known more colloquially as the belly button). They occur more often in women than in men. Treatment typically involves electrosurgery or laser.

Yes: A dermatologist can remove them with bca (an acid) or burn them off with electrocautery.

No: Syringomas are not related to exercise or the release of hormones associated with exercise. Uv light is associated with their formation, however.
