Thanks for your query.You have multiple small tumors on arm and hip and they are increasing slowly.This as a condition called as Neurobifbromatosis and it is congenital There is no permanent remedy for this .You have to excise the tumor only when it increases in size and becomes painful or gives rise to pressure symptoms by pressing over adjacent structure like blood vessels etc.
