Note: lipomas are always benign. There is no scientific evidence that a lipoma increases the risk of developing a cancer in the future. However, lipomas can sometimes be mistaken for a cancerous tumour called a liposarcoma.

lipomas are benign mass; but it can be confused as a malignant tumor because of the infiltration (7). The most common locations of lipomas, in decreasing order are thigh, shoulder, arm, trunk muscles (1,3,5,6,7). By the MRI,

Lipomas are the most common benign mesenchymal tumours and account for two thirds of all paediatric adipocytic tumours2. They are typically subcutaneous, however intra-and intermuscular locations may be seen. They commonly occur in the upper back, neck and proximal

It shows great clinical variability and is frequently associated with abnormalities of the corpus callosum. This can be part of specific malformation syndromes (1). With the increasing use of obstetric ultrasound, some cases have been detected in utero and reported in recent literature (2-5). Here we report the echographic features of seven new cases, discuss the potential use of fetal MR imaging for prenatal assessment, and highlight the need for follow-up.

A 2016 medical case study and a review of the literature showed that injection of a local anesthetic or steroids into the nodules, followed by needling at dry can lead to pain relief. The same study found only one clinical trial comparing an injection of local anesthetic to a saline solution. In this study, the injections were not followed by dry needling, and patients reported only mild and transient pain relief.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The best information for the diagnosis of lipoma comes from an MRI scanner, which can create better soft tissue images like a lipoma. The MRI scan will show a fat mass of all perspectives. Often, doctors can make the diagnosis of lipoma based on MRI imaging alone, and a biopsy is not necessary. Biopsy. A biopsy is sometimes necessary to confirm the diagnosis of lipoma.
