i have been diagnoised with fatty tumors on my ankles
My  medical doctor told me 8 years ago that I have fatty tumors on my ankles I was very concerned at that time. I thought  I was retaining water. My M.D told me otherwise. I asked her what I could do about this situation. She told me that when I experienced pain that they could do surgery to remove these. Weel 8 years later the tumors have grown and my right foot I am having alot of pain. Please advice me on what to do. thank you

Hi
Thanks for writing to the forum!
Fatty tumors or lipomas are benign tumors that are harmless. However, if the increase in size, become painful or if they cause pressure symptoms then they should be excised and biopsied.
Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
