User :   I've had this lump on my leg for quite a while and it has never really hurt it seems to increase in size with exercise but this week all of a sudden I have about 7 of them and they are very painful and make my legs tight. The existing bump grew 3x is size during physical activities. Should I go to a doctor? Do you know what it might be? And Oh I'm a 15 year old boy I think I'm healthy since I lost 60 pounds in the last year. Thank you for your time.
