I have two small hard unmovable and painless lumps on each upper thighs. A similar lump on left hip. Huge lum. behind stomach fat. Hurts when pressed?

Many people have them and they do not require any intervention unless they are so large they are cosmetically unappealing or pressing on a nerve and causing pain. An examination by your provider can confirm this is the case. Very rarely is any additional testing needed to make this diagnosis. ...Read more

Right side tonsillitis.Stiff neck,ear fullness, TONGUE FEELS PULLED&SLIGHTLY PAINFUL ON RIGHT SIDE&bumps on it deep in throat.Possible tongue cancer?

Unilateral tongue sx: Key issue is how long this has been going on. Most likely at your age, the symptoms are related to a localized infectious process, perhaps a peritonsillar abscess, with an immune reaction leading the tongue and other lymphoid tissue to respond, close off your tubes, enlarge nodes in your neck and even along your tongue. If persistent, go for exam. Oral cancer rare @22, but not impossible w. HPV ...Read more

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

Lump in my stomach. About 2 in long. 2 inches above my belly button slightly to the left. 
Will rise to the surface and become visible. Then when mashed it's painful and will move.

Possible Hernia: By your description it sounds as if you may have a ventral hernia. I would like to know if you ever had any surgery in the past, including laparoscopic surgery. Frequently, with laparoscopic surgery a small incision is made around the umbilicus (belly button) and it is not uncommon that a piece of omentum (fat from inside the bell) or bowel could get caught. I would recommend a surgical evaluation ...Read more

Have about 10 tiny hard lumps under skin across upper abdomen. Not painful. What might this be?

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. ...Read more
