Please describe the strange lumps on my back and abdomen?

Different options

Abdomen
The body has a lot of things in it both in the skin and below it. Sweat glands, hair follicles and skin cysts as well as lymph nodes, fatty tissue, tendons, bones and other things. Is the lump growing, inflamed, painful, painless, draining, recurrent or constant, moveable or fixed...? Each of these (and many more) will provide your doc the answers as to what it is and what needs to be done.

I have lumps on back of my tongue?

Normal

The bumps are called circumvellate papillae. Usually they are in a v shape at the base of the tongue. A normal number of these papillae are 8 to 12. These are taste buds.

Squishy lumps on lower back, why?

Simple vs serious

Muscle_system
Our bodies always have things that grow and change. Skin, fat, muscle, lymph nodes, bones, can change shape, get larger, more prominent due to many factors. The vast majority are not cancer but simply unusual growths like fatty tumors, cysts, skin tags, moles, etc. Most cause no symptoms and can be watched. If they cause symptoms or change colors, bleed, bruise or hurt, then see your doctor.

Hi I have movable lumps in my lower back I was wondering if you could tell me what they might be thank you?

Can not

Lower_back
Without a physical examination of the area and the lumps, it would be very difficult if almost impossible to tell you what they are. See a Dr. for an evaluation and proper diagnosis, good luck to you.

Why might someone have lumps in the back of neck?

Cysts and lymphnodes

Open-uri20121012-21203-1yih4qy
We have only few glands in the back of neck and swelling/lumps you feel are often from sebaceous cyst, which if infected can cause pain and may look like the one in picture here. lymphnodes are typically small and mobile but can get larger and sore if there is infection near-by the area. If it is bothering you, get it checked. Boil can be lanced and may need antibiotic. consult doc. Good luck
