Having a 3.5 tumor removed on upper thigh. What type of tumor or fatty tumor can it be? Surgeon says most likely lipoma but the pain is unusual.

Had 3 drs look at invisible lump, no biop. Decided its deep lipoma partly on spine. I found almost matching pair below ribs. Spot on back liposarcoma?

Tricky: not quite sure of the question. ithout an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health, Dermatologic conditions are hard to evaluate without seeing them in person. if the lump is pigmented, some risk of it developing into a cancer.
