I aso have lumps under my skin; hard, not able to move and sore. I have never asked anyone about them, I just assumed it's part of getting older. The ones you describe seem like fatty deposits or cysts. Probably what mine are too but mine are fibrosed due to age (40 a few months ago, stigma toward age). They say life begins at 40 I am still waiting for mine to start. Anyway, I hope you get yours sorted out and get your question answered.

I have a lump the size of a pea on my right forearm which I've had for years. The doc told me it was a fatty lump and didn't see any point in removing it as I would be left with a scar.
Mine is the same as yours, I can move it and it's not painful.

There is a sort of lupus skin ( lupus profundus or panniculitis) when the lupus affects the subcutaneous fat cells and destroys them. As far as I can see the lesions are visible though with redness and maybe some slight swelling. They are often on the face and leave very unsightly pits. This doesn't sound like yours though.
Did they biopsy them when they cut them out?
