Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

From your description, most probably you have lipoma which is the accumulation of fat. If they are painful, get them surgically removed.

Please tell me the following things to help you better:

  • How many lipomas do you have? What are their size and duration?
  • In which sites are they present?
  • Are all of them painful?
  • Does anyone in your family have a similar problem?
