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.
Well, most likely: The only way to obtain an accurate assessment will be via actual medical assessment. This will allow for visualization and palpation. ...Read more
