In brief: The good news is

most all the lumps under the skin of the extremities are benign.
The most common are lipomas (benign fatty, soft tissue growths) dermatofibromas or neurofibromas. Dermatofibromas may be slightly pigmented/brownish. Sometimes neurofibromas can turn in cancers so they are sometimes removed. Other types of bumps include epidermoid cysts, keratosis pillars, etc. which can be distinguished by a doctor
