Have about 10 tiny hard lumps under skin across upper abdomen. Not painful. What might this be?

Likely benign: Tiny lumps under the skin can be due to several things. If these don't move about under the skin when you push on them, they are probably skin cysts. IF they are deep in the skin and feel squishy, they may be noncancerous fatty growths called lipomas. If they move about under the skin and you think they are growing, then I suggest being seen to make sure that they are not lymph nodes. ...Read more

Most likely a LIPOMA: A lipoma is a benign lump that can occur on your trunk and extremities, and actually anywhere under your skin. The only time they are surgically removed is if they aggravate you, like if they are under a belt or bra strap or cause pain with exercise. They also change size, sometimes small, sometimes larger, then going smaller. The only other thing to consider would be hernia of your intestines. ...Read more

Hernias can be repaired with routine surgery. You need to have this evaluated by your doctor as untreated hernias can become strangulated and cause severe problems. ...Read more
