Have lumps and swollen arms. No medication till now. What can be cause and the remedy?

I would just be interested to know if my swollen arms and armpits that have lumps would be anything to be concerned about. I have pain radiating from my armpit into the breast area at times. My work is very repetitive and often very
strenuous so thought it may have something to do with muscular pain also. I often get very red on the forearms as well.

General Surgeon 's  Response
As per your query,you are having multiple swellings over arms and armpits.Most probable diagnosis is Multiple Lipoma's.
I am sorry to say that there is no medical treatment.
Pain radiating to the breast is not due to these lesions.It is due to musculoskeletal pain.Please use Skeletal muscle relaxants for this.
Get a swelling removed by your surgeon and send it for histopathological examination,i.e biopsy.
The diagnosis will be confirmed.
If you come back after biopsy report,i will clarify further
