Lipoma is usually painless and harmful, but if it is bothering you, or growing further, then it needs to be removed.
Lipoma treatments include:
- Surgical removal: Lipomas are mostly removed through surgery by cutting them out. However, there are chances that they may occur again. Since the surgery may leave a scar or get the area bruised, minimal excision extraction may be performed so that it results in less scarring.
- Liposuction: This treatment uses a needle and a large syringe to remove the fatty lump.
- Steroid injections: Steroid shots can be given directly on the affected area to help shrink the tumor.
