Possibly: Or maybe a growth unrelated.....need to find out.
I have lumps in my arms, legs, thighs and buttocks. They are inside my skin and do not hurt. I do not know what it could be. I have sle lupus?
Probably nothing: They are likely just normal variations in subcutaneous tissue but have your rheumatologist take a look if you are concerned.
Small painless lump on outer skin of breast found. I have also noticed part numbness near by. A lump deep in tissue further up. Lupus or follow up?
Not lupus: Have the breast lesion evaluated immediately. It is not related to lupus.
These could be: Cysts, lipomas, or many other benign tumors, see dermatologist for answers
Cellulite: Possibly a result of cellulite which results in lumps and dimpling or indentations in the skin.
I get large lumps under the skin in my face that come and go. They usually subside within a couple of hours and pop up in different spots.

See your PCP to get: An evaluation and xrays to ensure that you don't have a fracture. Other possibilities include a pulled muscle, or collection of blood causing a lump etc, etc. Another possibility is that the lumps were always there but you noticed them after hurting the forearm from the fall. Seeing an orthopod would greatly help for proper diagnosis. Good luck ; happy holidays.
Maybe: If there are only a symptomatic lumps, radiation is effective. If skin tumors are widespread chemo might be indicated.
What could be the possible cause of painful lumps under the skin on both shins? There is no redness.
Erythema nodosum?: A condition called erythema nodosum typically causes painful bumps over the shins. Usually there would also be redness, but not always. Erythema nodosum often is a sign of other systemic inflammatory diseases. For example, it often shows up in people with inflammatory bowel disease, i.e. Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis. See a doctor if the problem continues. Good luck!
I have small hard painful lumps under the skin on my bikini line. I can see small white heads on the surface. What could these be how do I treat these?
Maybe skin cysts?: A little bump on the skin that has whitish stuff inside, but is not pus as in a pimple, is likely a skin cyst that contains skin oils and skin cells. A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can look at it to see what can be done. Sometimes, keeping the cyst empty for a while will allow it to shrink in size. On a penis, tiny permanent whitish bumps near hairs may be normal and not need removal.
Top of my left arm on the back I have at least. 5 lumps under the skin all in same area, painless but do not no what they are?
Hard to say: With just the description you gave it is hard to say. These lumps could be lipomas (benign fatty tumors) or they could be cysts (maybe less likely). Having them examined by your primary care doctor would help you figure this out.
I have two very small colorless lumps under the skin in my right arm pit that are only painful when pressed. What could this be?
Axillary lumps: Hard to say. Possibly lymph nodes, or sebaceous/inclusion cysts. Best bet is to see your physician to get these lumps evaluated.
Hello, I have some strange fibrous connected lumps under the skin of my upper left pectoral area. What could they be? (I am male). Thanks
Be seen: Males can definitely have breast cancer, although certainly not as common as females. You need to be seen immediately and thoroughly evaluated. The other possibility is fibrous changes in the fascia itself, but need to be seen to have this evaluated.
