If very bloody, then aspiration of hematoma can reduce infection and bruising.
Several surgical decisions.
Jp are closed system, in contrast to an open external drain. ...Read more
Can a intramuscular bicep lesion that appears heterogeneous on an ultrasound still be a lipoma? What else could it be?
Ultrasound: Is limited in its ability to characterize soft tissue masses. An MRI with contrast is the best study short of biopsy to evaluate whether this lesion is a benign lipoma or something else. The contrast allows the radiologist to see if any part of the presumed fatty mass enhances (as may occur with liposarcomas). ...Read more
What if MRI shows mixed signal densities in an intramuscular lesion? My doc is thinking its a lipoma, but everything I have read is saying malignancy
MRI Lipoma: Mri, as any imagining study, cannot make a diagnosis and is very dependent upon the interpreter of the test - the radiologist. The only way to know for sure is a tissue biopsy. Since they cannot make a definitive diagnosis just by MRI or x-ray, many radiologists, will hedge their bets and mention that they cannot rule out a malignancy. Have your doc go over the risks and benefits of biopsy. ...Read more

Ct findings 6.1x3.7x2.1cm intramuscular lipomatous gastrocnemius mass. Likely lipoma. MRI advised. Was told do nothing unless worsens. I'm Concerned?
Get MRI to be sure:
MRI is better than CT to characterize soft tissue masses. IV contrast would likely be used for lipoma analysis. These statements assume the patient is a candidate for MRI and contrast.
Lipomas are benign, but it is nice to almost completely exclude a rare liposarcoma--less than 3 in a million people diagnosed in a year. MRI along with a benign history and presentation does this. ...Read more
Had ct for leg mass 6 month ago. Said likely intramuscular lipoma calf. Suggested mri. Didn't get. Last 2 month double in size and lots of pain.?
Get re-checked: Lipoma is a benign tumor that can occur anywhere in the body, and some can grow to be very large and compress surrounding tissues, causing pain. However, CT scan alone may not be adequate to distinguish lipoma from potentially more serious tumors, called liposarcomas. Further testing, with a tissue biopsy is the only way to definitively confirm the tumor type. ...Read more

Have many lipomas. Can they cause trouble? By pushing on nerves or something else? None ever hurt but are growing.

Lipoma: A lipoma is a slow-growing, fatty lump that's most often situated between your skin and the underlying muscle layer. Often a lipoma is easy to identify because it moves readily with slight finger pressure. It's doughy to touch and usually not tender. You may have more than one lipoma. Lipomas can occur at any age, but they're most often detected during middle age. ...Read more

Lipomata that are deep to the muscle layer have a higher incidence of malignancy. Sometimes lipomas can cause pain and tenderness, too, even though most are asymptomatic except for its apearance. ...Read more

Done carefully liposuction in the area mentioned usually has few complications or residual masses ...Read more
