Lump on arm, sore, painful, tiredness, upset stomach, headache. Lipoma?

Hello. I noticed a small, soft lump on the back of my arm , near the armpit, last July. I noticed it because that area was sore...not just the lump but the whole area which at times radiated down my arm. From July (7-15-11) to now (3-11-12) I have asked several doctors to both feel the knot and explained my symptoms which are: pins and needles pain, radiating pain, dull or aching pain. It never really goes away. I ve had no injuries, no disease and no other health problems. I am a 40 yr. old female. As of the last few weeks, I ve now noticed at least one more knot that is painful and feels like a bruised area if touched though there is no bruising and again, no injuries. My two MD s have both just passed this off as a lypoma tumor as has a vericous vein dr. and plastic surgeon . I have had two other lypomas removed on the same side of my body, one on the lower part of my arm, near my wrist and one on my side ribcage/breast area. I really don t think these are lypomas. I have no idea what kind of Dr. to see. I really feel like I need a specialist that can look into the tissue in the back of my arm. Please advise. My other issues that I was thinking were unrelated are extreme tiredness at times, upset stomach and bowels and headaches. Again, I ve always been very healthy, active. I m 5 4 and weigh @ 145. Thank you for your time.

Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, looking to the history this could be lipoma but the pain is uncommon in lipoma in my opinion to differentiate this the biopsy is must this could clear the picture, hope this information helps you have a good day.
