Most likely they would be lipomas. Dercums disease is where individuals develop multiple lipomas. Usually observation is recommended for these. If any of them are symptomatic, rapidly growing or significantly enlarged in size, then Surgical excision is recommended for the same. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.
Likely it is fatty lump called lipoma. Use a surgeon.
