3 lumps on leg and neck

My first lump appeared on the leg, about 2 years ago, then few months later a similar one appeared on the neck. I went to the docotor and then to a dermatologist who just looked at those 2 lumps and said they're not dangerous, but if they begin to hurt they need to be removed (infection I guess). This month another similar lump has shown on my chest (diameter about 1cm). They're hard to touch, but don't hurt/itch or bleed. They're under skin, this new one has red color, older 2 don't have color (maybe it has color because I touch it all the time). Is there any explanation what this could be, I don't remember what the docotor said a year ago some kind of tumor but I don't know which, I'm also scared because of this new one that grew on chest,could I be in trouble?

If the lump was suspicious clinically and there was a doubt regarding malignancy then it should be excised and histopathological diagnosis should be confirmed.
