Hello there. I can understand your concern. Lipoms usually its a painless thing and causes only cosmetic problems. It cannot be treated medically. Surgical means is the only treatment for it. Kindly consult a general surgeon in person for further evaluation and management. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain.
