Lipoma - What is it?
Susan Evans, MD posted:
Dear Readers,

I've recently had a number of questions regarding lipomas and the best way to remove them.

Generally speaking, lipomas are benign and cause no real problems. If you have any questions about a lipoma, it is always best to see your doctor and get a medical evaluation rather than taking matters into your own hands.

It is far more dangerous to try to remove a lipoma yourself than it is to have it removed in a medical environment. It is never a good idea to perform surgery on yourself.
