Moveable squishy-like lump on pelvic/pubic region. I have other lipomas and I'm wondering if this is what is it? Are moveable lumps not bad? No pain
Mass: Masses can benign (not cancerous) things like lipomas, fibromas, cysts, swollen lymph nodes, etc. it's a good sign that this mass isn't painful and is mobile. Rarely, masses can be something worrisome (cancerous). I'd recommend you get it checked out by your obgyn or PCP because differentiating what it can be is easier by seeing exactly where it is. ...Read more

Can you get a lipoma in your lower abdomen/pelvic region (right above the labia)? I have a squishy, moveable lump that doesn't hurt
Yes: Lipomas can develop in the lower abdomen, but in the pelvic region there are also lymph nodes that can be enlarged, although those are more firm usually. Cysts and resolving hematomas can also present as painless lumps. The best thing to do is have your Dr evaluate it. Sometimes an ultrasound is needed if the diagnosis isn't clear. ...Read more
Deep lipoma on low r side of back/pelvis area. Grown in size about an avocado seed but wider more pain stemming from lump to right buttock down leg.?
Maybe, but...: Doc may be right since lipoma may have its share of inflammation though becoming spontaneously infected is rare.

To get these things done correctly, follow instructions described in articles listed in http://formefirst.com/onDealSickness.html. The Best wish to ... ...Read more
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
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

? Question: Are you asking how to tell the difference? Or are these results u were given by a md? Was this a breast or underarm ultrasound? Lipomas look like your normal fat but balled up in a lump, sometimes a very thin capsule is seen. Lymph nodes will often appear more dense and show blood flow on special ultrasounds. Both of these are usually benign. What is it u are ultrasounding? ...Read more
Depends: General surgeons, plastic surgeons, otolaryngologists (ent), dermatologists, and family physicians all remove lipomas. Well trained surgeons & family physicians can and do remove these with excellent cosmetic result. Is not uncommon for any of these physicians to have trainees remove a lipoma under supervision. This is generally not a complex procedure requiring ultra-specialist. ...Read more
Yes you may: But it depends on the size and location of the lipoma whether sedation is really a good idea. A small lipoma can easily removed under local anesthesia (numbing medicine that is injected). With larger lipomas, local anesthesia alone may not be enough. I've been involved with cases where full general anesthesia was needed. Talk to your surgeon and see what he/she recommends. ...Read more
