Can lower abdominal lipomas be caused from having been pregnant and weight gain?

Can lower abdominal lipomas be caused from having been pregnant and weight gain?

I don't think so: The cause of lipomas is not completely understood, but the tendency to develop them is inherited. A minor injury may trigger the growth. Being overweight does not cause lipomas. Pregnancy does not cause lipomas. ...Read more

See your surgeon: If the problem is discomfort, it may not be related to the hernia, rather scar tissue. If you think the hernia is back, see a surgeon with experience in abdominal wall reconstruction, including perforator soaring techniques for "component separation". Not sure what you need however without a complete evaluation - history, exam, review old records and ct scans. ...Read more

Why is left upper abdominal lipoma so painful.hurts when moving, pressing, coughing twisting.sound like cancer?surgery on 29th.had for yrs but nvr hrt

Painful lipoma: Some lipomas have sensation associated with them. Others develop over time. Cancer is #37 in our differential, so...really no. As this is a recent development, a visit to your dermatologist for evaluation and a possible ultrasound would be warranted. These are very easy to remove through a small excision in an outpatient setting. Ask about removal. ...Read more

Unlikely tobe Cancer: Lipomas are benign fatty tumors. They are not cancerous. But it is a good idea to get this lump removed and find out for sure what it is....just in case it is not a Lipoma. Just relax and wait to worry. ...Read more

Left upper quad abdominal lump. Ultrasound diagnosed lipoma twice.no growth within year.very painful when coughing or pressure applied. Cancer?

Be seen: A lipoma is a benign growth of fatty tissue and usually does not cause pain, nor is it usually tender. An ultrasound is not a sensative enough test to distinguish between a lipoma and other growths. So if you are having symptoms of pain, I would definitely get some further testing or even consider an excisional biopsy. ...Read more

Can a abdomen lipoma harm my baby ?

Can a abdomen lipoma harm my baby ?

Lipoma: A Lipoma is a benign growth of fat cells. I do not understand the worry behind your numerous questions about this today. It is a benign growth, usually in the skin. That means it is not in any way associated with the uterus. If your lipoma is causing you pain you can easily have it removed surgically. But I do not see why you are so worried about this. Perhaps you should discuss with your OB. ...Read more

Can a abdomen lipoma harm my baby ?

No.: A lipoma is a fatty tumor that is usually encapsulated and certainly will not harm the baby. Normally one would watch a lipoma and only have it removed if it caused pain or one elected to have elective surgery for cosmetic reasons. Good luck and congratulations with your baby. ...Read more

Lipoma on back, swelling around that w/pain that wraps around side into abdomen on left side any ideas?

Back swelling : Lipomas are benign fatty tissue (sometimes referred to as tumors) that is movable within the fatty layer area. Sometimes these lipomas may envelope a nerve near the area and can compress it if pressed upon or swelling is noted. This compression of the nerve causes the radiating pain you may be describing. However boils or cysts may do the same, you may need that checked out by your doctor. ...Read more

I have back, side, and abdomen pain believed to be from a possible lipoma on the rib we did an intercostal injection of steroid if 0 change then what?

Thoracic ESI?: This is what i would do for a patient with this: consider thoracic radiculopathy. If the MRI of t-spine looks fine, then the lipoma can be surgically removed (possibly). If the MRI correlates with a "pinched nerve", then do a thoracic epidural steroid injection. ...Read more

I have had 4 epoisodes of severe lower left abdominal pain, resolved after 3-4 hours. I have a intramuscular lipoma on right side could it be the caus?

Unlikely: Lipomas can cause pain but I don't think that I would blame severe left lower abdominal pain on a lipoma on the right "side" (flank, I assume). I would have the abdominal pain evaluated by your doctor or urgent care today. ...Read more
