    Question Lumps under skin on forearms

    White male 48, I recently noticed a lump under the skin on my right forearm. It is moveable, oblong and soft but gets harder toward the center, center is almost like a pencil eraser size and feel. I noticed it visually. After further inspection I have 2 of these on my right forearm and 5 of them on my left forearm. They don't hurt and aren't inhibiting any motor functions but I'm worried about what could have caused them and if they'll grow or spread. Thanks for any feedback.

    Best to get it checked out, but from watching Dr Pimple Popper...she's removed many and most seem to be lipomas. Some people are familially prone to them. However, there are other possibilities.

    See a specialist who deals with lumps and can remove them for you.

    Thanks, i'll have to look up that show. Do you think I should see a dermatologist for this then?

    Start there...and hopefully, the dermatologist can either remove them or send you to one who will.

    Definitely check out her show.
