Doctor insights on:
Lipoma: They are typically found in superficial locations (can feel them just beneath the skin). The skin is injected with a local anesthetic. The skin overlying the lipoma is incised, and the lipoma is dissected out an removed, usually in one piece. It is sent to pathology for detailed analysis. Sometimes light sedation is administered by an anesthesiologist. Deep lesions may require a bigger operation. ...Read more
I had a axilary armpit lipoma surgery last month.Now I am facing problem on stretching my hand. Folding of biceps not prob. But stretching shows pain?
Possibly: There is an ultrasound treatment called liposonix which could potentially be an option. Other than that, only surgery. Keep in mind that multiple lipomas do not need to be "cured" or removed.
