Lipomas

Lipomas are fatty lumps that grow underneath the skin. They are soft and non painful, and one of the most common reasons patient's seek dermatologic care

Can lipomas be dangerous?

Lipomas can be confused with the following:

  • Lymphomas (cancer of the lymph nodes)

  • Lymph node enlargement from Valley Fever or Tuberculosis

  • Sarcomas (cancer of the connective tissue)

Treatment

 

Because lipomas are surface growths, they can usually be excised with local anesthesia. Surgery can be done as an outpatient, in our doctor's office, with very little risk.  Stitches are usually removed after about 2 weeks.
