Mysticdoc :

Hello,

Mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

Mysticdoc :

Since the lumps are not painful, they are not infected.

Mysticdoc :

These lumps can be fat cyst or lipomas which can become prominent on standing up.

Mysticdoc :

Fibroma or scar tissue cyst also can cause these lumps.

Mysticdoc :

They are benign and not concerning.

Mysticdoc :

They can remain like this for long time.

Mysticdoc :

They can also be removed surgically --minor surgical procedure.

Mysticdoc :

Please get this checked by your doctor at your convenience.

Mysticdoc :
