Have it checked out: It sounds like you have a series of "lumps" or lymph nodes that are painful particularly on your left side. You should have it checked out to make sure there isn't an infection going on. Don't forget that the lymph nodes act as a drainage and filtration system to try to stop infection. They will swell and be painful. You also want to be sure the lymph nodes are not swollen because of cancer. ...Read more

Lipomas,lymph nodes: A lipoma will feel free floating in the skin. You will not feel a boarder to it. A lymph node will have better definition to it. It also will feel deeper. Lymph nodes enlarge with a history of infection among other things. Have it checked out by your primary doctor. He/she will examine you and may do blood work looking at your white cells. Hope this helps. ...Read more
