Do I have to have the lipoma on my arm removed of its growing and how is the removal preformed step by step?
Maybe: Normally small asymptomatic lipomas do not need to be removed other than for cosmetic reasons. 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

Check with surgeon: You need to make sure there is no infection and a complete neurological exam of your chest wall and arm is needed.

Can you get lymphphdemia. From a maintenance I.v. In your arm where your lymph nodes have been removed after 18 years?
Yes: You should NOT have an IV in an arm that's been adversely affected by excision of lymph nodes in the past. Maybe your doctors or nurses overlooked this fact?

Is it normal for a scar to continuously come back brown? I picked at one on my arm and removed it but now it's coming back brown again.

If you keep picking at it, it will continue to be irritated and be more noticeable. Best thing is to leave it alone so it can heal. ...Read more
