Get it removed : While it is rare for lipomas to turn into liposarcoma, a large lipoma especially on the arms or legs should be removed completely as those locations have a higher risk. Larger lipomas have a higher risk. Sometimes an MRI before surgery can give clues as to the possibility of finding a sarcoma. ...Read more

Have it examined.: Lipomas are quite frequent and can happen almost everywhere on the body. Usually not painful but sometimes (especially if on top of the bone) may be quite painful and uncomfortable. They can be easily removed surgically. Just have it evaluated by a surgeon. The smaller the lipoma the easier it is to remove it, the smaller the scar. ...Read more

See a surgeon or a plastic surgeon. I have no idea if liposuction could be used to as i would like to see it coming out with it's capsule otherwise it may reoccur. ...Read more

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 more

Is there higher chance of reoccurring lipomas or neg. side eff. if removed?  I have one right next to my spine and it's about the size of a golf ball.

Have it removed: The risk of removing a lipoma is very small and the benefit of having a golfball removed far outweighs it. Lipomas can recur in the same spot but is a low chance. Removing one does not cause lipomas in other areas to develop. ...Read more

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). Lipomas do not have to be removed - unless they are causing you some sort of distress. Check this out with your doctor to be sure you're on the right track. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

I am a 16 year old male bodybuilder and I have one lipoma on the right side of my ribcage, just below the lat muscles. I want to get a surgery done. Help me.

Lipoma or Hernia: As the lat muscles extends all the way down to the hip, you are probably inquiring about a mass in the lower back. As you are body builder, besides the diagnosis of a lipoma , i would also have to consider a hernia. I would recommend seeing a surgeon for assessment. You may need a scan to confirm or exclude the diagnosis. ...Read more
