| | Strange bumps Under skin?
I apologize if this turns out to be in the wrong folder, because I don't even know if this IS a skin problem.
Less than a year ago, I noticed these strange bumps/lumps on/in my chest and stomach. I noticed the first 2 under my left breast, on my first rib, I guess. I noticed a few others around my stomach(some are more like clusters..?). They would only hurt when pressed on, and hurt similar to how pimples do, except VERY far under the skin that I don't even know if they are part of it. I mean, I could even move the skin around and they would stay in the same place. You can't see them, even when I stretch the skin. And they are quite dense, but I am afraid that they could burst if pressed too hard. But if they did burst, it would be inside me because they are all way too far inside to ever break the skin.
I have noticed more and more cropping up. Some more around my stomach and more on my first ribs under my breasts, but more outward, closer to my armpits. They have spread further down from there, as well. Because of their placement I thought maybe it might just be something to do with my bra and large bust. But I am getting really suspicious because none of these bumps are breaking the skin, and now, the general areas of the bumps hurt even when not being pressed on, and the discomfort is lasting longer every time.
What the heck could this be and why would I get it? Cysts, Cancer, Shingles??? Should I have them removed, if even possible?
This can't be normal. Please help!
