Hi there...I can understand your concern. Some people do have the tendency to develop multiple lipomas. It is a genetic predisposition. Nothing can.be done about it. usually they will be harmless. Very rarely when it is on pressure bearing areas, it can become inflamed and painful. In such cases it might require excision. But it is important to differentiate lipoma from neurofibrmatosis, as neurofibrmatosis can be associated with few other complications. So kindly consult a general surgeon for further evaluation.
