Hard masses in the pelvic area. Need to be concerned? Cancer?

Hi I have a number of about 4 to 6 masses in my lower pevic area. They are hard to the touch but when I press on them I feel discomfort but no pain. It is like I am pressing down on a marble kind of object in my lower stomach , it goes down into the stomach but does not go down in size (so in other words it feels hard to me and not full of air). I also feel the masses when I lay down on my back to try and feel them at a laying down stance. What do you think it is, is it something I really need to worry right now about. What is a anerisum in a mass in the lower stomach about, my friend thinks she is a doctor and tells me I could have cancer or something. Please help, thanks. -Mariann 27years old

General Surgeon 's  Response
The swellings that you are palpating are Lipoma's , swelling arising from fat cells.
It is neither Cancer nor Aneurysm.
You get one of the swelling removed by your surgeon and send it for histopathological examination(Biopsy).It will confirm the diagnosis.
Nothing to worry
If you come back with biopsy report,i will clarify further.If it is lipoma,there is no medical treatment.
Wish you good health
