Finding a new lump or bump on your body could give most of us pause. After all, a lump could, in rare cases, mean cancer.

There are number of skin or medical conditions that can cause lumps and bumps appearing on the surface or just below the skin.

In rare cases, an unexplained lump, bump or swelling can be a sign of a more serious issue beneath the skin.

While speaking on ITV’s This Morning, UK’s famous Dr. Sara warned that:

“If that little lump has been there for two weeks.”

“If your lump is getting bigger.”

“If the lump is hot, red or painful.”

“Other signs include it has been removed and come back again.”

Bumps that are cancerous are typically large, hard, painless to the touch, and appear spontaneously. It may grow over weeks or months and can be felt from the outside of the body can in the breast, testicle, or neck, but also in the arms and legs.

One type of cancerous lump that can form almost anywhere in the body is called adult soft tissue sarcoma. The soft tissues of the body include the muscles, tendons (the bands of fiber that connect muscles to bones), fat, blood vessels, lymph vessels, nerves and the tissues around joints.

Most frequently, though, adult soft tissue sarcoma develops in the legs, arms, chest or the area behind the abdomen called the retroperitoneum, says oncologist Dale Shepard from Cleveland Clinic.

Most commonly, soft tissue sarcomas feel like masses or bumps, which may be painful. If the tumor is in the abdomen, it may produce nausea or a sensation of fullness as well as pain, he says.

“Tell your doctor about new lumps or other symptoms that cannot be explained or that don’t go away in a few weeks,” Dr. Shepard says.
