A lipoma is a growth of fatty tissue that slowly develops under your skin. They are generally soft to the touch, movable, and painless. People of any age can develop a lipoma, but children rarely develop them.
The most common way to treat a lipoma is to remove it through surgery. This is especially helpful if you have a large skin tumor that’s still growing. Lipomas rarely grow back once they’re surgically removed.
It is important for the patient to be properly assessed by a doctor or dermatologist before treatment is given.
