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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If smaller lipoma is painful, it is growing or associated with an adjacent sensory nerve. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
