I have been discovering lumps underneath the surface of my skin for years now. The first of which came in the form of two small bumps on the right side of my neck, which I had discovered roughly 5 years ago. They never bothered me so I never saw them as an issue. The next lump was discovered about 2 years ago on my upper tricep for my right arm. This was a bit more concerning but once again I blew it off. The lump used to never be visible but now it appears the skin above the lump has been discolored to a dark grayish-tan. The entire area covers roughly the same size as an M&M. Then in the past few months I discovered 3 new lumps. One under my jaw toward the right mandible and 2 on my right jawline. Admittedly I'm worried and I'd like to hear some opinions more qualified than mine. And yes, I realize that I should've seeked medical attention upon the discovery of the first lumps but time evaded me then. But now I'm willing to make time if need be.
