Skin lumps - concerns


Many people wonder if small bumps on the body are something to worry about. The majority of bumps that appear on your body are harmless (especially the kind that feel soft and roll easily - called lipomas). See Skin lumps for details.

However, always be sure to show any new or changing bumps to your doctor.
