9 months ago, I discovered a large bump on the outside of my lower left leg, right above the ankle. I went to my dr, and she sent me to a dermatologist. He ordered x-rays, and said that he didnt see anything, and diagnosed me with a lipoma, and that it should disappear.

Just my luck, the lump has actually gotten bigger, and I noticed a few weeks ago that 2 more lumps appeared on my leg, about 2 inches away from the main bump, on my shin, one on top of the other. With those, there is also pain and bruising. I didn't injure my leg at all, and didn't bump up against anything what so ever.

I showed my doctor, and she sent me for more x-rays, which again, came back fine. I have an MRI on tuesday, hopefully they will see what the problem is...

Can lipomas grow, as well as spread? and should I worry? Its really not soft and mushy, like a lipoma should.
