I have recently developed these soft lumps on the shin of my left leg. They seem to come and go, but always return in the same place. There about 3 of them, and they are about an inch big. Any ideas? Many thanks.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These could be due to allergic hypersensitivity skin reaction or lipoma. Naked eye examination is needed to sort it out.
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
