Hello there. I can understand your concern. It could also be a lipoma and not a neurofibroma. It needs to be diagnosed by a surgeon. If its lipoma, it can be removed surgically. If its a neurofibroma, nothing can be done about it because it's a generic disorder. I would suggest you to stop thinking it's a neurofibroma and consult a general surgeon regarding this and let him decide. He may ask you to get certain tests like FNAC(FINE NEEDLE ASPIRATION CYTOLOGY) of the lesion done. Best regards. Dr. Anil Kumar Jain.
