Lumps deep within upper arm.

Hello! Just looking for some insight, I have been seeing a provider for lots of work up, not feeling well off and on and just fatigue. She was pointing towards auto immune, one day i went to put my hair up and noticed these lumps down my inner left arm.... same color as my skin but felt deep within, I went on PEN VK to make sure it was no infection. We still since october have a a few obvious lumps, nothing was seen on ultrasound so MRI was the next step although we didnt use contrast. The radiologist stated "There is digitation in the cutaneous and subcutaneous tissues, however no obvious mass..... and ruled it no significant abnormality." Waiting to hear back from the surgeon as he wanted to biopsy too but wanted to see what we would be cutting into and at this point, it seems still unsure. Has anyone else ever had lumps with this result? Deep achy pain. Sometimes its sharp and shoots into my breast. Usually a dull ache and just miserable..

Hello and welcome to the forum.  Sorry no one has answered your question yet.  Is there any update?  Have you had follow up since you originally posted this?  I'm sure this is worrying for you and hope you've had a positive outcome.  What did the doctor say and did you have a biopsy and we'll pick back up from there.
