What are skin lumps?

Also known as: skin bumps, cysts, skin tags, lipoma

Any abnormal bump or swollen area under the skin could be qualified as a skin lump. Though they sometimes concern the individual with the lump, most are non-cancerous (benign), particularly if they roll easily under the skin or are soft.
