Do I have to have the lipoma on my arm removed of its growing and how is the removal preformed step by step?

However if you have a lump under the skin that is tender, painful, or growing rapidly it should probably be removed and biopsied. Usually this can be done in an office setting with local anesthesia. An incision is made, the lump is identified and removed and then the skin is closed with sutures. ...Read more

Lipomas do not have to be removed - unless they are causing you some sort of distress. Check this out with your doctor to be sure you're on the right track. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

Unlikely: Cancer tends to be very hard and grow very fast. It would be unlikely that a mass you had for 5 years is cancer. Still, if it growing now you should have it checked. A biopsy will prove that it it benign and It is easier to remove when it is 1.5-2 cm than when it is 10 cm ...Read more
