How can I get rit of a lipoma and how does affect it to my health?

Minor Surgery: Lipomas are benign growths of fatty tissue, usually found just under the skin. They can grow anywhere on the body. Unless they get so large they push on some vital structure, they generally cause no serious problems. They are treated by excision, which can be done in the office or operating room depending in the size & location of the tumor, as well as the your surgeons preference. Best wishes! ...Read more

Should I get the lipoma on my cheek removed?

Should I get the lipoma on my cheek removed?

If it bothers you!: This "lump" could be a number of things, almost all of them benign. If it is big enough to bother you, then let an abps-certified plastic surgeon excise it under local anesthesia. There will be a small scar, but it will be the least possible. Other doctors can remove this but may leave a bigger scar, suture marks, or other issues for which a plastic surgeon may be needed later! so start there! ...Read more

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
