Are the lumps in my legs fatty tumors or what? I have several lumps/bumps under the skin around my upper thigh area. One is near my panty line, it is about the size of the tip of my thumb and hard but does not hurt. It's been there probably 8 or 9 years

Two lumps behind ear and on side of neck that are hard and itchy. I have psoriasis any relation? Three lumps just appeared one present for a year?
My son is 13 and hit his head hard against a wall playing basketball. Is this serious as he has no symptoms and only has a lump that hurts when touch.

So often bumping head against hard surface causes a big bruise/bump which will resolve. Since he has no other symptom, he should be ok. But, i would keep an eye on him--if has increasing headache, nausea/vomiting, dizziness over next 24 hrs, contact doc asap. Otherwise, he should do well. Good luck. ...Read more
