How does it feels to have a lipoma intramuscular? What are the symptoms? Is it a serious thing?

Usually asymptomatic: Intramuscular lipomas are usually asymptomatic and are found incidentally. As such, they do not typically require treatment. If it is large enough, it may cause tenderness in the muscle involved (very uncommon). In that case, you should see an orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more

78 grams of lipomas removed from lower back on each side over erector spinae group deep intramuscular are jp drains necessary on both sides thank you?

A choice: The surgeon will want to empty the space to advance approximation and healing.
If very bloody, then aspiration of hematoma can reduce infection and bruising.
Several surgical decisions.
Jp are closed system, in contrast to an open external drain. ...Read more

Can a intramuscular bicep lesion that appears heterogeneous on an ultrasound still be a lipoma? What else could it be?

Can a intramuscular bicep lesion that appears heterogeneous on an ultrasound still be a lipoma? What else could it be?

Ultrasound: Is limited in its ability to characterize soft tissue masses. An MRI with contrast is the best study short of biopsy to evaluate whether this lesion is a benign lipoma or something else. The contrast allows the radiologist to see if any part of the presumed fatty mass enhances (as may occur with liposarcomas). ...Read more

MRI Lipoma: Mri, as any imagining study, cannot make a diagnosis and is very dependent upon the interpreter of the test - the radiologist. The only way to know for sure is a tissue biopsy. Since they cannot make a definitive diagnosis just by MRI or x-ray, many radiologists, will hedge their bets and mention that they cannot rule out a malignancy. Have your doc go over the risks and benefits of biopsy. ...Read more

Ct findings 6.1x3.7x2.1cm intramuscular lipomatous gastrocnemius mass. Likely lipoma. MRI advised. Was told do nothing unless worsens. I'm Concerned?

Get MRI to be sure: MRI is better than CT to characterize soft tissue masses. IV contrast would likely be used for lipoma analysis. These statements assume the patient is a candidate for MRI and contrast.
Lipomas are benign, but it is nice to almost completely exclude a rare liposarcoma--less than 3 in a million people diagnosed in a year. MRI along with a benign history and presentation does this. ...Read more

Had ct for leg mass 6 month ago. Said likely intramuscular lipoma calf. Suggested mri. Didn't get. Last 2 month double in size and lots of pain.?

Get re-checked: Lipoma is a benign tumor that can occur anywhere in the body, and some can grow to be very large and compress surrounding tissues, causing pain. However, CT scan alone may not be adequate to distinguish lipoma from potentially more serious tumors, called liposarcomas. Further testing, with a tissue biopsy is the only way to definitively confirm the tumor type. ...Read more

If lumps occur after 19 year and no other symptoms of neurofibromatosis found in early age. Which I seen in wikipidia? But it look like lipoma is it?

If lumps occur after 19 year and no other symptoms of neurofibromatosis found in early age. Which I seen in wikipidia? But it look like lipoma is it?

Need to see it.: You can have one neurofibroma without having neurofibromatosis, but it's more likely, statistically, to be a lipoma. A dermatologist can usually tell the difference just by looking, but a biopsy might be necessary to know for sure. Either way, see a dermatologist so you won't need to worry about it anymore. ...Read more

Other signs with NF1: Some helpful clues in distinguishing the 2:
café au lait macules--irregularly shaped, evenly pigmented, brown macules. Most have 6 or more café au lait spots that are 1.5 cm or greater in diameter.
Axillary and/or perineal freckling
neurofibromas nodules may be brown, pink, or skin colored, soft or firm to the touch, and they may have the pathognomonic buttonhole invagination when pressed on. ...Read more

Imaging can help: If lesions are superficial some imaging techniques such as ultrasound and mr imaging can often differentiate these benign tumors. It is true biopsy is gold standard for differentiation. Doppler ultrasound may differentiate by degree of perfusion or blood supply. ...Read more

2 movable lumps on left collarbone near shoulder. Dr said it's fine but didn't say what they were. Lipomas? Lymph nodes? No other symptoms.

2 movable lumps on left collarbone near shoulder. Dr said it's fine but didn't say what they were. Lipomas? Lymph nodes? No other symptoms.

Lymph nodes, lipomas: A lipoma is in the skin, and looks like a bulge in the skin itself. An enlarged lymph node is usually under the skin and its possible to move the surface of the skin separate from the underlying lymph node.

Benign lymph nodes can be either softer or a bit more firm than a lipoma, If a lymph node is very hard or unyielding, or tethered under the skin, be sure to get it checked out. ...Read more

Had appendectomy 3 weeks ago. Now having upper outer thigh pain. Two painful lumps. Ultrasound was done. Doc said lipoma. Is sudden pain A symptom?

Here are some...: Which thigh do you have pain? How has it begun, evolved thus far? In a clinical profile 3 weeks after appendectomy, it is still reasonable to consider if such pain is procedure- or disease-related. Seeing lipoma in groins on ultrasound is common. So, ask and work withe the surgeon for individual detail timely. ...Read more

Sir, I have no symptoms of neurofibromatosis and also not in my father and mom but some lumps are in my hand and very few on my thigh, is it lipoma?

Possibly: Lipoma is a benign tumor which is the most common cause of lumps under the skin. It has a very typical physical exam and your family doctor should be able to tell you after examining the area whether it is or not. ...Read more
