Lumps On My Back - Very Worried - No Doctor Access


many thanks in advance for your responses.

I have had 2 lumps on my back for at least 2 years now.

The 1st one is under just under the skin on sits on a rib and is pretty hard. It does move slightly and is not painful really just if pressed very hard. It has not really changed shape or size, but does sometimes feel more tender and more visable after a night out etc.

The second lump is further down and not as visable as it feels deep and more in flesh then the 1st. Its actually just to the right of my spine where in what feels like sime muscle mass.

Again this one has not really changed size or painful unless pressed very hard.

I did see a doctor a long time ago who briefly looked at the 1st one and said it was fatty tissue but actually am more worried about the 2nd one as it seems to be more deeper into my body.

Any advice help would be much appreciated.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!
I read your question and I understand your concern.
These could be fibromas or lipomas.
Both are benign conditions and don't require treatment. You need just reassurance.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
