What Are These Fat Lumps All Over My Body? Understanding Lipomas and Lipoma Removal at Revitalise London Dermatology Clinic
Do you have lumps or bumps on your body that you can't seem to get rid of?
There is a good chance that you have lipomas. Lipomas are slow-growing tumours made up of fat cells that are not cancerous. Even though they aren't usually dangerous, they can be ugly and make you feel bad. If you have lipomas, you're not the only one. Here are the facts about lipomas and how to get rid of them.
What are Lipomas?
Under the skin, lipomas are soft, fatty lumps. They can show up anywhere on the body, but most often on the neck, shoulders, arms, back, and stomach. Lipomas are usually small, with a diameter of less than 2 inches, but they can sometimes get bigger. Most of the time, they don't hurt, but if they are in a place where there is pressure or friction, they can be uncomfortable.
Why do people get Lipomas?
No one knows for sure what makes lipomas happen, but there are a few ideas. Some people are more likely to get lipomas because of their genes, while others get them because their hormones changed or they hurt the area. Some medical conditions, such as Cowden syndrome or adiposis dolorosa, may also be linked to lipomas.
How do you treat Lipomas?
Lipomas are best treated by having them cut out. Lipoma removal is a simple, straightforward process that can be done without putting the person in the hospital. During the procedure, a small cut is made in the skin, and the lipoma is taken out. The cut is then closed with stitches, and a bandage is put over it. Most people can go back to their regular lives a few days after the procedure.
