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

What if MRI shows mixed signal densities in an intramuscular lesion? My doc is thinking its a lipoma, but everything I have read is saying malignancy

What if MRI shows mixed signal densities in an intramuscular lesion?  My doc is thinking its a lipoma, but everything I have read is saying malignancy

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?

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

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?

Could be: Unfortunately, without a physical exam it is almost impossible to tell what a "lump" is. However, the good news is that by your history, it does not sound like you have new lesions related to your neurofibromatosis. The most common "lumps" found under the skin if they are soft and mushy are cysts and lipomas. ...Read more
