In brief: Painless lump
A lipoma is the most common fatty tumor. The main symptoms are a painless lump that can appear almost anywhere in/on the body.
Often there are no symptoms and the lump is found incidentally during a different test ordered for another reason. Lipomas, if they are symptomatic, can be removed surgically.

In brief: Extra fat
It is localized collection of fat.
Could. Be solitary or multiple and the condition may be familial. It is almost always cosmetic in nature and can be removed by minor surgical procedure if desired.
