I have about 3 small lumps on my abdomen what are they and should I be worried? I'm a 25 year old man .

Lipoma vs hernia: If the lumps are relatively small and nontender and on top of muscle layer may be lipomas (benign fatty tumors). If made worse when you squeeze your abdomen could be hernias. Hernias would change in size and generally softer than lipomas. ...Read more

3 pea sized hard lumps in abdomen, can feel them but can't see them....likely cancer?

Hard to say/depends,: It's hard to say what it could be without more information. It depends on where the lumps are in the abdomen, how long they've been there, and what other history you've got, if any. If you've got no diseases, and normal labs it's highly unlikely they're anything. If you're still worried it's a good idea to see your doctor for an exam, tests, and possible referral. Best of luck. ...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.

Could be a hernia: The first thing that comes to mind with the above description is an incarcerated hernia, although there could be other causes as well. An incarcerated hernia is potentially, but not always a surgical emergency. It would require a hands-on examination by a surgeon to make that determination. Sometimes it requires immediate operation to prevent or treat gangrenous bowel. ...Read more
