Lipoma on the leg or not? (Photos)
Doctor Answers 2
Lipomas and cysts can appear very similar. They are both benign and can both appear on your legs. I recommend consulting with a board certified plastic surgeon. After physical examination they will be able to make recommendations for excision. If your are concerned about scarring make sure to ask about the final size of the scar.
Best of luck

Thank you for sharing your question and photographs. Unfortunately without an in-person examination it is difficult to offer a true diagnosis but this could be a lipoma or inclusion cysts. In either case I would advise seeing an ASPS board certified plastic surgeon in consultation to discuss excision. Hope this helps.
