Customer Question
I have a cluster...

I have a cluster (4) of small hard knots or masses in my lower left abdomen and I have a one knot in lower right abdomen. They are painless; but i'm curious to get your opinion of what they could be.

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

No symptoms

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I am 41, healthy. I have several lipomas on my body; but none of those have a little friend around them

do they feel like lipomas?

do they change if you bear down at all?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I'm not totally positive. They are not large. The biggest one is maybe the size of a walnut. they do not change from what I can tell.
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 11 months ago

They are very very likely lipomas

but a quick ultrasound can tell for sure

is this helpful?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
