Lipoma is a non-cancerous growth of fat cells that typically appears just under the skin. They are usually soft, painless, and moveable. Lipomas can occur anywhere on the body, but are most commonly found on the neck, shoulders, back, abdomen, arms, and thighs. While they are generally harmless, lipomas can sometimes cause discomfort or cosmetic concerns.

They occur when there is an overgrowth of fat cells in the body. While the exact cause of lipomas is not known, they tend to run in families and may be associated with certain medical conditions.

The surgical procedure for removal of lipoma involves making a small incision in the skin and removing the fatty tissue. The wound is then closed with sutures or glue, sometimes two layers of stitches and sometimes just one, and a dressing is applied to protect it.

Dr Chowdhury will inspect the lipoma before attempting to remove it. He won't perform the removal if he doesn't deem it is safe to do so. The lipoma may need to be sent for histology to confirm the diagnosis.
