What is a Lipoma? 

A lipoma is round or oval-shaped harmless, soft, fatty lump which grows under the skin. People of any age can develop a lipoma, however, it is less common to see lipomas on children. They are non-cancerous (benign) overgrowths made up of fat cells.


Why should you get a Lipoma checked? 

Whilst they are harmless, with any lump on the skin it is extremely important to get it any changes to your skin checked by a professional to diagnose the ailment correctly.

Lipomas do not usually need to be treated, however, they may become uncomfortable when wearing certain clothing and some people may request for them to be removed for cosmetic reasons.
