Lipoma: Sounds like they may be lipomas which are benign encapsulated accumulations of fat. 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

Soft lumps are,: generally, not too concerning, but finding them over the tibias (shin bone you are feeling) is not the most common location. It is somewhat reassuring that you find them on both legs. The most common diagnosis would be lipomas/benign fatty growths....one's weight has little to do with it. It would be worth having your doctor take a look to confirm the diagnosis. There are more serious causes:( ...Read more

Very unlikely: What your described is not suggestive of any cancer and it is very unlikely that you have one. Next time you see your doctor, you may discuss your symptoms with her/him. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
