hi
Welcome to healthcare magic forum
The knots in your arms and legs might be neurofibroma if the number is gradually increasing. Consult your surgeon
Thank you

Hello neha;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The knot you are describing if it is not painful it is probably a Lipoma that is a knot or swelling made of fatty tissue.It is a harmless swelling and can cause discomfort or pain only if it is on any place where it can cause pressure on muscles or other tissues.The only method to treat it if required is to get a surgical removal done as you had got done previously.So if you need to remove it you can contact a surgeon and get it removed by a minor surgery.
Thanks
