Dear doctors, i recently noticed a swelling in my armpit, I had CT scan and ultrasound. Doctors said it's not lipoma, can you help me and advise me?
Swelling in armpit: This is very difficult to answer without the ability to visually examine and touch your underarm. The most common abnormalities of the underarm can be divided into those that are deep under the skin and those that are on the surface. Those that are under the skin can include enlarged lymph nodes, epidermoid cysts, or some type of ectopic breast tissue. Lipoma would fit this category. On the surface swelling is usually related to the sweat glands or hair follicles in the form of folliculitis boils or hidradenitis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Do I have to have the lipoma on my arm removed of its growing and how is the removal preformed step by step?
Maybe: Normally small asymptomatic lipomas do not need to be removed other than for cosmetic reasons. However, if you have a lump under the skin that is tender, painful, or growing rapidly it should probably be removed and biopsied. Usually this can be done in an office setting with local anesthesia. An incision is made, the lump is identified and removed and then the skin is closed with sutures. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have one lipoma located on my lower left back when I press on it hurts . I have another one on my arm and when I press on it don't hurt?
Near nerve: Lipomas are benign fat lesions. For the most part malignant transformation does not occur and lesions remain dormant in growth patterns and are unassociated with pain. Should a benign lipoma grow to more than 10 cm., become painful and adhere to surrounding structures they need bx. If smaller lipoma is painful, it is growing or associated with an adjacent sensory nerve. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No.: Unfortunately, the only way to get rid of a lipoma is to surgically remove it. Happily, these are often very minor operations that can be performed in an office setting under local anesthesia in less than 30 minutes. If this lipoma is interfering with the quality of your life, I recommend seeing a surgeon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Not a DIY project: First of all, this is not a do-it-yourself project. Assuming the diagnosis is correct, lipomas can be removed through a minor surgery (even in the office).
