Sir...the multiple swellings which you are describing can be multiple lipomas/ neurofibromas. They can sometimes increase in size and can become painful.
I can see you are apprehensive because your friend has been diagnosed with recurrent sarcomas. The best way to get over this apprehension is to consult a doctor and get an FNAC (fine needle aspiration cytology) [ a test in which the material from the lump is aspirated and analysed under a microscope]. This test will make it clear whether your lesions are benign or malignant.
Your abdominal hernias are unrelated to the present condition.

The presence of multiple lumps raise the suspicion of a lymph node enlargement or a sarcoma. It is better you visit your physician preferably a surgeon and undergo a biopsy to rule out any cancer. The complications of your previous surgery should not force you to delay in taking a consultation.
