What You Need To Know About Lipoma Removal?

Lipomas are soft, spongy, fatty lumps. They are always benign (non-cancerous) growths consisting of fat cells that cluster together, forming anywhere on the body that has fat cells present. Lipomas characteristically are soft to touch, and are moveable under the skin when pressed.

Lipomas frequently appear in the fatty tissue, just beneath the skin, and may vary in size from the size of a pea to several centimetres across. These growths are the most conspicuous, with the shoulders, back and chest being the commonest areas of development, although not exclusively.

Lipomas are surprisingly common, with approximately 1 in 100 people developing one or more lumps at some stage. Some people will inherit the condition, and may develop several on different areas of the body, but typically, only one or two will develop. The inherited condition is called familial multiple lipomatosis, and as the name suggests, many fatty lumps can be produced, but this is very rare. 

Lipomas are extremely slow growing, and as mentioned are always benign and not serious, causing no obvious issues, other than the larger growths sometimes reaching a size that becomes unsightly and embarrassing. In exceptional cases, a lipoma may press on a nerve and cause come discomfort, or could develop within the gut, leading to possible pain or blockages.
