There was a gland under the skin in my left hand about 15 years ago. I also showed it to doctor but he said if there is no pain or problem then leave as it is and it will not create problem. There was no problem by it yet but now as time passed there are several glands in both my arms, back and now starting in thighs as well. Still no pain or problem but it creates shame for me with a person with athletic body. I came to know that it may happen due to a rare form of Tuberculosis as well. Can you guide me with the correct path for diagnosis and treatment as it has also made my body weaker slowly and steadily. However, due to my will power and sports person I work on it gets my body fit again but it is not possible always in future due to increasing age factor now.
