What is a Lipoma?

Description of the disease:

A lipoma is a benign tumor composed of fatty tissue. It can appear in any part of the body, but is most commonly found on the neck, back, abdomen, or upper extremities.


  • Simple lipoma
  • Subcutaneous lipoma
  • Fibrolipoma
  • Mixed lipoma


A lipoma usually presents as a soft, movable lump under the skin. It may be painless and grow slowly.


The exact causes of lipoma formation are unknown, but the most likely factors are genetic predisposition, obesity, and certain metabolic disorders.


Diagnosis of lipoma involves examination and palpation, with the possibility of ultrasound or CT scan if necessary.


Usually, no treatment is required for lipoma, especially if it does not cause discomfort. Surgical removal of the lipoma may be performed if necessary.


Prevention of lipoma includes maintaining a healthy lifestyle, combating obesity, and timely medical attention for any new formations.


Lipoma treatment is carried out by surgeons or oncologists.
