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

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

Lump: Difficult to tell you what it is without a physical exam. It could be a sebaceous cyst, tiny abdominal wall hernia, tiny lipoma, aberrent lymph node..... Please see your physician to examine it and perhaps have it biopsied and removed. Even some benign lumps like lipomas can cause discomfort sometimes. ...Read more

My abdomen has been cramping my cervix feels hard and open and my discharge is really sticky like gum thick like skin clear and almost dry?

Many causes: Vaginal discharge requires an examination to determine the cause and treatment. Bacterial vaginosis is the most common cause and often has a vaginal odor. Vaginal itching can be a sign of a yeast infection. Sometimes vaginal discharge can be a sign of a sexual transmitted infection. Testing is important to determine the treatment and keep you and your partner safe. ...Read more

Can 3 hard pea sized lumps under the skin in abdomen just be lipomas? Doctor wasn't worried, does it need to be biopsy?

Possibly: Lipomas can be any size from very small to very large.
Without an exam I cannot answer if your lumps need biopsied. Lipomas are benign and do not have to be removed unless they get larger or cause pain...or you just want them out. ...Read more

No, : No, pregnancy tests are accurrate and can pick up a pregnancy as soon as the first missed period, when the uterus is the size of a pear.

This sounds urgent, so you should contact your primary care doctor (or find one) and have an examination as soon as possible. ...Read more

Good work!: Excellent job so far. You are almost there. Keep working on diet and toning exercises. In your case, working on the core, with exercises like crunches and or sit ups can help. If you were very obese, sometimes, there is such excess skin flap, that you may need surgery, but for now, keep up the good work! ...Read more

I have 2 hard lumps in my head they r about the size of a marble. Can they b a sign of bowel cancer?

Unlikely: I'm not sure why you are concerned about "bowel cancer" from lumps in your head. Bowel cancer presents in many ways but head lumps is not one I'm familiar with. If you have blood in your bowel movements or abdominal pain or unexplained weight loss that might be suggestive. Either way you should see your primary care doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more

What are these little white bumps near my belly button? Also, above my waist line. I squeezed one, & a hard white head came out.

Doctor can evaluate: Rashes and bumps are hard to describe, and hard to visualize, in words. Bumps that have stuff in them include comedones (skin pores plugged with skin cells), sebaceous glands (they make sebum, cheesy-appearing oil), folliculitis (infected hair follicles, with or without a visible hair), etc... A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can evaluate. ...Read more
