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.
In between my upper abdomen, there is a small 10mm ish lump. It is soft to touch and is only visible when I flex my abdomen.
Most likely a LIPOMA:
A lipoma is a benign lump that can occur on your trunk and extremities, and actually anywhere under your skin.
The only time they are surgically removed is if they aggravate you, like if they are under a belt or bra strap or cause pain with exercise. They also change size, sometimes small, sometimes larger, then going smaller.
The only other thing to consider would be hernia of your intestines. ...Read more

I'm 18 I have a small lump under my skin on my upper abdomen. It has swelling but only the lump itself hurts when touched. Should I be worried?!
Possible Hernia: A hernia is when the muscle in the abdomen splits and allows the tissue underneath to poke through. This sometimes creates a bump on your abdomen, but not always. Hernias can be repaired with routine surgery. You need to have this evaluated by your doctor as untreated hernias can become strangulated and cause severe problems. ...Read more

I have had several episodes of hypoglycemia, abdominal pain, dark urine. Ct found a mass on head of pancreas, EUS showed dark spot, 2nd EUS shows none?
Biochemical proof: Hi. Before any imaging of the pancreas is done, biochemical proof of fasting insulin-mediated pathological hypoglycemia should be established. Has that been done? If so, EUS is good, but still not as good as intraoperative US. If endogenous insulin-mediated pathological hypoglycemia is proven, the problem lies in the pancreas, and surgery is warranted. We need more info. Most insulinomas not CA. ...Read more
