Hello;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The soft tumors on your hands;stomach and back are probably Lipomas ; a sort of benign tumor formed by deposition of fat in a particular place.These are harmless and do not cause any health problems.If the tumor is a single or two then you can get excised or removed surgically if you want to look it cosmetically better otherwise let them as they are and they will not trouble you.
Thanks
