Is there higher chance of reoccurring lipomas or neg. side eff. if removed? I have one right next to my spine and it's about the size of a golf ball.
Have it removed
The risk of removing a lipoma is very small and the benefit of having a golfball removed far outweighs it.
Lipomas can recur in the same spot but is a low chance. Removing one does not cause lipomas in other areas to develop.
