What is Lipoma

A lipoma is a growth of fat cells in a thin, fibrous capsule usually found just below the skin. Lipomas are found most often on the torso, neck, upper thighs, upper arms, and armpits, but they can occur almost anywhere in the body. One or more lipomas may be present at the same time. Lipomas are the most common noncancerous soft tissue growth. Although it has been hypothesized that lipomas may rarely undergo sarcomatous change, this event has never been convincingly documented. It is more probable that lipomas are at the benign end of the spectrum of tumors, which, at the malignant end, include liposarcomas. Because more than half of lipomas encountered by clinicians are subcutaneous in location

What causes a lipoma ?

The cause of lipomas is not completely understood, but the tendency to develop them is inherited. A minor injury may trigger the growth. Being overweight does not cause lipomas.



What are the symptoms of a lipoma ?

Lipomas usually:

  • Are small [0.4 in. to 1.2 in.] and felt just under the skin.
  • Are movable and have a soft, rubbery consistency.
  • Do not cause pain.
  • Remain the same size over years or grow very slowly.

Often the most bothersome symptom is the location or increased size that makes the lipoma noticeable by others.


Lipomas are most often asymptomatic. When they arise from fatty tissue between the skin and deep fascia, typical features include a soft, fluctuant feel; lobulation; and free mobility of overlying skin. A characteristic "slippage sign" may be elicited by gently sliding the fingers off the edge of the tumor. The tumor will be felt to slip out from under, as opposed to a sebaceous cyst or an abscess that is tethered by surrounding induration. The overlying skin is typically normal.

Symptoms in other sites depend on the location and can include the following:

  • Lipomas in the major airways can cause respiratory distress related to bronchial obstruction. Patients may present with either endobronchial or parenchymal lesions.
  • Previously undiagnosed lipomas of the oropharynx may also lead to airway difficulty at the time of intubation.
  • Patients with esophageal lipomas can present with obstruction, dysphagia, regurgitation, vomiting, and reflux; esophageal lipomas can be associated with aspiration and consecutive respiratory infections.
  • Cardiac lipomas are located mainly subendocardially, are rarely found intramurally, and are normally unencapsulated. They appear as a yellow mass projecting into the cardiac chamber.
  • Intramediastinal lipomas may impinge on the superior vena cava, thereby leading to superior vena cava syndrome.
  • Intestinal lipomas may manifest as classic obstruction, intussusception, volvulization, or hemorrhage.
  • Lipomas arising from fat in the intramuscular septa cause a diffuse, palpable swelling, which is more prominent when the related muscle is contracted.
  • Lipomas in intra-articular joint spaces or intraosseous sites, such as the calcaneus, may lead to joint dysfunction and pain that preclude normal ambulation.
  • Lipomas may also arise in the dural or medullary components of the spinal cord, thereby leading to cord compression and attendant sequelae
  • Lipomas occur frequently in the breast but not as frequently as expected considering the extent of fat that is present.
  • Lipomas may arise from the subcutaneous tissues of the vulva. They usually become pedunculated and dependent.

How are lipomas diagnosed ?

A lipoma can usually be diagnosed by its appearance alone, but your health professional may want to remove it to make sure the growth is noncancerous.

Auroh Homeopathic Treatment for Lipoma

homeopathy is considered to be one of the safest and most effective modes of alternative therapies to treat lipomas completely. Though the process can be time taking but treatment is highly beneficial.

homeopathy helps in reduction of the fat mass and also helps in preventing further spread of the growth.

homeopathy is of use in eradicating chronic relapsing conditions. Homoeopathy doesn�t treat the �disease in man� but it treats the �man in disease�. Homoeopathy treats the cause of disease and the illness will disappear. homeopathy is strongly recommended. More on Lipoma
