Hi.
Lipomas are benign fatty tumors in the subcutaneous layer of the skin.  They are soft, mobile, and usually painless.
Treatment consists of simple excision.
Please consult your surgeon for evaluation and management.
Good luck.

Hi,
A lipoma is a benign lesion. If a confirmed diagnosis suggests it is a lipoma and it is not troublesome it need not be removed. A conservative approach to management is followed, with regular follow ups and reporting any change in size or any other features to your doctor. Goodluck.
