Has Anyone Had A Lipoma Popped
More info, please: I would like to answer your question, but I am uncertain what you mean by "popped". Lipomas are benign tumors usually found just below the skin, anywhere on the body. In general, these are removed if they cause discomfort or are growing. Surgical removal can often be done under local anesthesia in an office setting. It is often easy to make a scar smaller than the lump, and "pop" it out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My husband get's lipoma all over his body, they have been popping up over the last 5 years. He is 31. Why do these occur? Can our kids get them too?
Don't know and yes: "no one knows why these lumps form, although they do tend to run in families and may result from mutations in fat cells leading to rapid, but orderly proliferation. They are benign growths, meaning they do not become cancerous and do not metastasize (spread to other organs)". You may get great results from chinese medicine or homeopathy...Look uo a practitioner in your area. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/qaa400507/lipomas-frustrated-by-fatty-tumors.html. ...Read more
I have lipoma on my shoulder, i applied pressure to it and tried to pop like a pimple. It sprayed a fowl smelling substance for a month. Is this safe?

These are benign lesions, but can become infected. You should seek medical attention and have this looked at as you may require antibiotics and then removal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mainly genetic...: There is a hereditary predisposition to developing lipomas, and some feel that they may arise after some form of trauma. You don't really need to do anything to them, but the best way to get rid of them is to have them surgically excised. If you do have it removed, make sure there is a biopsy of the lesion just to be sure. ...Read more
Fatty tumor: Lipomas are benign (non-cancerous) fatty growths. They have been reported just about everywhere in the body, but are usually seen under the skin. They can be observed if they are small, but are commonly removed if they are enlarging, causing deformity, tender, etc. Generally, once removed, they do not return. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Benign bumps: Lipomas are soft, mobile, fatty tumors that push their neighbors aside rather than invading like a cancer. They can be solitary or multiple and can occur anywhere on the bey from scalp to feet. Multiple lipomas are frequently passed on genetically. Small lipomas are ignored, larger ones can be excised. Rapidly enlarging, painful and firm, fixed lumps should be checked out sooner than later. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
