Hyperechoic mass (lipoma) in left kidney is observed. What preventive measures are needed?? Is it a type of benign tumour?? Can it metastatize??

Kidney tumor: Usually this is called angiomyolipoma, which is a benign tumor. It does not metastasize. There is no treatment necessary if small.

I have two lipomas in my lower back one at right and one at left, they are painful plus I feel pain in my ribss too recently, what should I do?

I have a possible deep lipoma on lower back near spine. It is palpable, but it did not show up on an ultrasound. Is it safe to say it isn't cancerous?

I have a possible deep lipoma on lower back near spine. It is palpable, but it did not show up on an ultrasound. Is it safe to say it isn't cancerous?

No: An ultrasound can not differentiate the fat that makes up a lipoma from the surrounding fatty tissues under the skin and will not definitively be able to differentiate a cancer from a non-cancer. If the lump is hurting then have it removed and it should be sent for pathological analysis. That will tell you if it is a cancer (Malignancy) or not. A true lipoma is not typically dangerous. ...Read more

If lumps occur after 19 year and no other symptoms of neurofibromatosis found in early age. Which I seen in wikipidia? But it look like lipoma is it?

Need to see it.: You can have one neurofibroma without having neurofibromatosis, but it's more likely, statistically, to be a lipoma.

Benign lymph nodes can be either softer or a bit more firm than a lipoma, If a lymph node is very hard or unyielding, or tethered under the skin, be sure to get it checked out. ...Read more
