I am not aware: Of any non-surgical methods of lipoma treatment. Specifically, I have no knowledge of any of the things you mentioned having any beneficial effects against lipomata. Consult with your doctor about best treatment.

Lipoma Treatment: Lipomas are overgrowths of fatty tissue under the skin, and these will typically not regress with any type of treatment except for surgical removal of the fatty tissue. This is typically a very straightforward procedure, and can sometimes even be performed in the office of a board certified plastic surgeon.
