Lipoma in most cases is not harmful and if suggested by the doctor then it can be left alone also. If the lipoma is just below skin then it can be removed by a dermatosurgeon. Alternatively you can visit a surgeon also. The surgery is safe with relatively few side effects and you should be able to go home on the same day itself.
