When I was 26, I was a extremely fit and packed with muscles and six pack meaning very low body fat percentage, that is when I noticed, I found a few more lipoma lumps on both my forearms like 5 on each, and like 3 on bi and triceps. Over all I had about 15 in total, including the very old one I had when I was a kid.
Now I dont know if these new lipomas were all along, since my body fat percentage came down, I see them more prominently or it was a side effect of my supplements NO2 such as superpump250 or my new habit that I started drinking alcohol.
The important thing is, NONE OF THESE LUMPS were PAINFUL. I squeeze them to no end, no pain. Except one of it was very tiny, and I pressed it too hard and it pained. But it stopped after a week, no more pain. My first and oldest lipoma I had since I was 14, stayed the same size, infact flatted out when I got older, that is upto 27. Almost 13 years.
I recently got almost all of my lipomas. The biopsy came out as possible angiolipoma that are yellowish and very well encapsulated. They called it angiolipoma because they had a little bit of blood vessel going on and the location of the lipomas were forearms.
Now, I read about angiolipomas but I am not sure how they are related with Dercums disease.
Basically I want to know if I just have multiple lipomatosis or Dercums disease.
Reading that if they dont pain, it aint Dercums disease, Im not sure if this is true. Can someone confirm this please?
PS: My father had one single lipoma removed when he was 40, and he doesnt have any lipoma now.

It does sound like familial multiple lipomatosis/common lipomatosis to me rather than Dercum's.
