Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. These are likely soft tissue benign deposits and fat deposits are top of the list. Just observe and wait. If these start bothering, visit a local cosmetic surgeon and let them help.

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
