Thanks for writing to us.
The small lumps which are there for last 5 years without any change in the size are likely to be benign soft tissue swellings like lipoma or fibroma or sebaceous cysts. An examination and investigations like FNAC will help in confirmation of the diagnosis.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
