My husband is 50 years old and a Vietnam Vet. He has what his Dr calls Fat Knots, and he has had them for 10-15 years and they don't hurt or seem to bother him in anyway. However he has for me decided to have them removed and checked out. What I want to know is what causes them and are they dangerous. I have asked many Dr.'s and each one has a different answer, Please Can someone tell me what causes the large knots, he has several on his stomache but the one on his neck is getting bigger and really worries me. Thanks, Elizabeth
I have a Lipoma the size quarter on my thigh. I had a docter cut it out 2 years ago. And its slowly has grown back again. I want it gone, but don't want the painful procedure repeated if its just going to be growing back again. Please help me.
I have a hundred or more lipomas, and they bother me mentally. Apparently they won't harm you unless they form in a bad or painful location. If they do, they can be removed surgically. I have had several removed when pain is involved...
My doctor continues to check some of them when I go in, so apparently they are benign. When they began forming 10+ years ago, I began panic attacks and anxiety. The panic attacks continue to this day, and I blame the lipomas.
I just needed something to blame.. lol
If you have had a similar experience, please post. Thank you!!
Can you have a lipoma on your forehead? My 11 year old daughter has a lump about the size of a pea in the middle of her forehead right below her hairline. It started out looking flat like a pimple about three to four weeks ago. Now, instead of looking like a flat pea it is starting to get a little rounder. Does that sound like what you all are refering to as a lipoma? I am bringing her to the pediatrician tomorrow or the next day, but I would like to know your opinions. Thanks!!
