In brief: No.
Unfortunately, the only way to get rid of a lipoma is to surgically remove it.
Happily, these are often very minor operations that can be performed in an office setting under local anesthesia in less than 30 minutes. If this lipoma is interfering with the quality of your life, i recommend seeing a surgeon.
