After losing 45 lbs, I have tiny lumps under skin of my abdomen. They are fairly mobile, small, and there are dozens. Are they accumulations of fat?

I have 2 marble sized hard lumps under skin of stomach. One by my rib and one under rib, same side. Doctor says not worry. What could it be?

Marbles: The differential diagnosis on what you describe is so lengthy and variable that a short answer will not suffice. However, the worst thing you could do is ignore these findings. The best thing you could do is get an opinion from another physician (not associated with your physician) just to make sure. This doesn't mean your physician is wrong. It just means if you are asking us you are concerned. ...Read more

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
