I'm glad that you are getting this checked and biopsied. My husband was seen by a dermatologist on 2 occasions who said his lumps were lipomas. She did no further testing. When he saw his oncologist after finding melanoma in his lung, the onc saw the lumps and said they were melanoma. We lost valuable time by not being able to pursue treatment early. His original melanoma was on his shoulder 21 years earlier. I don't mean to cause you any more stress, but those with melanoma need to be very vigilant as the disease manifests itself in different ways in different people. The quicker you get things checked, the less worry you will have. I'll be happy to hear that your biopsy shows a true lipoma. Best wishes.
