Dear customer, What your doctor is referring to and what you are having are probably epidermoid cysts or lipomas. These are benign growths which rarely cause problems or need treatment. These are harmless lesions and you should not worry about them. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/sebaceous-cysts/basics/definition/con-20031599 http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/lipoma/basics/definition/con-20024646 Take care.

why am i getting stomach pains why do i get pains in my left side and underneath my left breast

Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 1 year ago.
Dear customer, To know the cause for the stomach pain we will need to do an upper endoscopy which is a procedure that is used to visually examine your upper digestive system with a tiny camera on the end of a long, flexible tube. However this is most probably due to increased acid production in the stomach and the reflux, that is the flowing back of acid into your food pipe (esophagus). This backwash (reflux) irritates the lining of your esophagus and causes the symptoms of heartburn. Please take the medications zantac or prilosec which are OTC and see whether these improve your symptoms.http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/gerd/basics/definition/con-20025201 Take care.
