Is this a lump that you can move around? Can you pinch it between two fingers? Can you have someone mark it for you with a permanent marker? Is it hard or soft? These are all questions that you will want to answer when you see a doc. Mine were first diagnosed as lipomas until I went into more detail with a spine doc and he felt them. Then it was determined that they were cysts formed from scar tissue and I had them removed. But, now I have more and a doc is calling them trigger points.
You could feel mine in the lymph node areas and could move them around. They multipled with time and became very painful. When they were removed, it was determined that they were part fat, part scar tissue and part nerves that had formed bundles. They were in my muscle tissue. So, I had the whole meal deal.
They are coming back, so surgery was not the answer. The docs are still scratching their heads to see what to do next.
