They do not 'come and go' , Lipoma is a slow growing ,benign tumor of fat tissue, once develop will not disappear ,unless removed, rarely they can turn to malignant liposarcoma.

Dr. Joseph A. Mele answered:

Why and how lipomas form?

Benign bumps

Lipoma
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.

What to do for lipoma pain?

Surgical removal

Pain
As the lipoma swells it causes more pain. The nerves that supply that area will become more inflammed and continue to cause more pain. Unfortunately you can try other methods like nonsteroidals but not much success. If you can have surgery this may relieve the pain.

Dr. Prashant Sinha answered:

How large can a lipoma grow?

Larger than you want

Cancer
First make sure your doc agrees its a lipoma. Other things benign or cancerous may be confused with lipoma. While lipomas are very rarely cancerous, any lipoma bigger than 3 inches should be removed completely especially ones that are on the arms or legs.

How to cure Multiple Lipoma?

No cure except excis

Cancer
You have multiple lipomas and are looking for a cure. Lipomas are multiple tumors of fat. They are considered non cancers unless they grow very large. Excision seems to be the only way to get them to go away.
