Multiple Lipoma
I'm working in a software company and I've multiple lipoma (13 in number of which 2-3 are larger than 5mm in size.) throughout my body. I once consulted a doctor and he said its not that serious to have them but I'm worring a lot of them and their growth over the ast 3 years. How can I prevent further occurence in me, and how can I cure them (with or without surgery)? Please also clarify me is there any chance of occurence in my childreen.

Hi there...lipoma isn't cancer and usually is harmless. Treatment generally isn't necessary, but if the lipoma bothers you, is painful or is growing, you may want to have it removed.... Most lipomas are removed surgically by cutting them out...Recurrences after removal are uncommon. Possible side effects are scarring and bruising.A technique known as minimal excision extraction may result in less scarring...Steroid injections can be used...This treatment shrinks the lipoma but usually doesn't eliminate it. The use of injections before surgical removal is being studied...Liposuction is advanced method of treatment...This treatment uses a needle and a large syringe to remove the fatty lump...consult surgeon he will do the needful.
