Hi

May I ask where these lumps are specifically located on the legs?

Lumps on the legs may be lipomas or ganglion cyts. Lipomas are "benign (not cancerous), slow-growing tumors that come from fat cells. They are usually round, moveable, flattened lumps under the skin. They feel soft and doughy or rubbery. Lipomas usually grow in the neck, shoulders, back, or arms. Lipomas are the most common noncancerous tumor in adults. They can occur at any age, but they often appear when you're between 40 and 60 years of age. Sometimes they run in families. Sometimes they are caused by an injury. Most lipomas do not hurt unless they are squeezed or bruised. Lipomas are the most common noncancerous tumor in adults."

Ganglion cysts on the other hand "are among the most common benign soft-tissue masses. Although they most often occur on the wrist, they also frequently develop on the foot—usually on the top, but elsewhere as well. Ganglion cysts vary in size, may get smaller and larger over time and may even disappear, only to possibly return later. "

Cysts or lumps on the body may lie on a nerve and cause a burning or tingling sensation. Some bumps may be infected or may be tender due to recent pressure or injury. Have these lumps assessed by your physician. They are not  life threatening however I do understand that they can be quite discomforting.
