Fatty growth
I had 2 mushroom like growth removed from my leg 5 years ago, the biopsy report said that it was made up of fatty tissue and that there was no lymph node material detected. I recently found more of these lumps and was wondering if surgery is the only way to get rid of them? My doctor said that if they start to bother me then I must have them surgically removed.

Cazman, it sounds like they were lipomas (just make sure with your doctor) and the only way to remove them is surgery. Good luck.
