The Basics – Lipoma in West Palm Beach
A lipoma is the most common noncancerous benign form of soft tissue growth. It is a growth of fat cells usually found just below the skin. Lipomas are most commonly found on the torso, neck, upper thighs, upper arms, and underarms.
What is a lipoma?
Lipomas grow slowly and are thought to be related to a physical trauma, although this isn't known for sure. They are characterized as tumors but are different than other types of fatty tumors that are cancerous. Lipomas differ significantly from lipomas in terms of growth pattern, invasion into adjacent structures, and timeline of growth.
Lipomas are diagnosed based on a medical examination and review of your medical history.
In many cases, Dr. Reddy can remove lipomas as they sit just beneath the skin but above the muscle.
Lipomas are more likely in certain people and may have a genetic component. However, trying to tell an individual whether or not he or she will develop one is difficult. There isn't any documented way of predicting or preventing lipomas.
How do I remove a lipoma?
Since lipomas are noncancerous, they do not require any treatment. However, if a lipoma becomes bothersome, infected, or continues to grow, you may choose to have it removed.
Dr. Reddy treats lipomas through both liposuction and surgical excision depending on what is appropriate for a patient.
Does insurance cover lipoma removal?
Lipoma removal is a covered benefit with most insurance carriers.
