Customer Question
I have had these lumps...
I have had these lumps that are just outside my breast, they are round or oval, soft (I can push into them), moveable and feel to be very smooth. What would they be? Could it be breast tissue that just extends out? There's more on the left side verses the right. And it's not in my armpit but below it

I do not know what you mean by "just outside the breast"

They aren't in my breast but on my side I guess, about an inch or so from my breast

Show these to your doctor, of course.

But they are most likely lipomas.

Fat collections that are harmless.

Cysts are possible....also not harmful.

Best educated guess from the description: lipomas.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
