Soft painful lumps under skin
Hi, Health Boards. I'm a little freaked and could use some insight.
I'm a college student. Recently, I noticed a soft, tender lump on my leg, right over the shin bone. When I run my fingers over it, it hurts just like a bruise would, but there is no discoloration of the skin and I haven't had an injury there. I wasn't too worried about it until tonight, when I found an almost identical lump on my forearm. This one is slightly more painful (only when I touch it.) Both are soft but not moveable.
The fact that I have two unexplained lumps at the same time is what perturbs me. I know cancer is unlikely, but my mother did have breast cancer at a young age, so I tend to worry. Anyone have any clue what the hell this could be?
