Lumps/Fat like appearance under skin on front of legs when slighty squeezed

Not sure if this is in the right section but not sure where else to put it.

When i squeeze the skin together on my legs i get a fat like appearance, its not like cellulose really but lumpy and it moves around occasionally when being squeezed. I wasn't just randomly squeezing my legs by the way, I was moisturising them and just pressed to hard.

I do realise that this could just be fat and i could be worrying over nothing but I thought I would try and get an answer anyway as it is a little strange.

It is mainly on the front of my legs and not as bad on the thighs.

Other info that might help - I have feet that swell, mainly on one foot and this the cause is not know. This has been going on for a few years now. Also, my heart occasionally adds an extra beat. My doc knows about this but I moved away for 1 year just after i told him so it was never really investigated.

Thanks for your help!
