Lipomas: Lipomas are harmless fatty tumors. I would suggest that you go to a plastic surgeon or a dermatologist to have it removed. Typically, an incision is made overlying the affected tissue, and the fatty tumor is "popped out" like a pimple. Sometimes, these growths are tethered down, and removal can be more difficult. I know of no way that is legal to shrink these in the us as many of the fat disolving injectables were removed from the market. There are some devices for cellulite out there, but I think surgery is your best option. Good luck! ...Read more

Will I still be able to dye my hair with a lipoma on the back of my head?

Will I still be able to dye my hair with a lipoma on the back of my head?

No problem: A lipoma is a small benign fatty tumor which can be ignored if it doesn't bother you. It has nothing to do with your hair so adding dye is of no concern. Make sure your doctor confirms that it's only a lipoma and not something more serious. ...Read more

Lipoma removed 2 days ago, section of head still numb not near incision. Will numb go away? If not will it hurt my hair growth in the numb area?

Lipoma removed 2 days ago, section of head still numb not near incision. Will numb go away? If not will it hurt my hair growth in the numb area?

Scalp numbness: Skin nerves can be indirectly or directly affected by surgery. Depending on the location of the surgery (especially along the back of the head near the neck), scalp nervses can become temporarily or permanently numb. It can take some months for sensation to return too. Nerve sensation to the scalp would not be related to hair loss. ...Read more

I have numbness in about 30% of my head (in the back) from a lipoma that was removed fifteen days ago. When I saw my doctor about it nine days post-operatively, he was non-chalant about it: "yeah, you could have permanent numbness." the doctor made a tr

Your post cut out...: Unfortunately we can't list all possible complications, just common & dangerous. I suspect you're not happy w/your doc's nonchalant attitude, which aggravates numbness. Good news is numbness in back of your head shouldn't have any long term implications on your health. Of course, that won't make it go away. You could get a second opinion, but I don't think there's any surgery or drug to fix this. ...Read more

I had a lipoma removal from my scalp on Tuesday. I am having sharp shooting pains in the back of my head and hot, burning sensation near incision.

I had a lipoma removal from my scalp on Tuesday. I am having sharp shooting pains in the back of my head and hot, burning sensation near incision.

Have a look: You had a skin lipoma removed from your scalp. These are usually only removed for pain or large size. Ask someone to have a look at the incision. Sometimes the lymphatic drainage is involved. If the invision is red and hot and angry looking yoy may need antibiotics. Office based procedures like any other procedures have infection risk. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Ct head scan results are frontal lobe sulci bilateral prominent. Prominate subarachnold space. Midline lipoma. Anterior interhemispheric fissure promi?

Atrophy: The midline lipoma probably doesn't warrant any treatment. These are usually incidental findings, but they can be associated with some congenital brain disorders. You basically seem to have less brain in your skull relative to fluid spaces relative to others. Have your doctor review the scan with you. ...Read more

Why and how lipomas form?

Why and how lipomas form?

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 more

What to do for lipoma pain?

Surgical removal: 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. ...Read more

Has anyone had a lipoma popped?

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 more
