First off, I am obese and have been all of my life. I'm 31, female.
I have had these lumps throughout my stomach since my teenage years, however now there seem to be more and they hurt. Basically anywhere you press into my skin, it's tender-stomach, legs, arms, lower back. It's also lumpy and full of hard bumps.
My stomach has been concerning me the most lately. The lipomas range from dime size to maybe 2 inches and have become painful. They also move when I bend over and it feels like something popping.
I have ignored it for years because I'm fat and I have just labeled the problem as another one of those fat people issues that I deserve to have for being fat and that cannot be fixed until I lose weight. Well I have an incredibly hard time losing weight. All the obesity stuff aside, I figure I will finally ask:
Is it worth it for me to talk to a doctor about this issue?
Can they remove 20+ lipomas throughout the stomach area?
Is this going to cost more than my house?
Will they come back?
