A lipoma is a non-cancerous tumor consisting of fat cells. It grows slowly under the skin in the subcutaneous tissue. A person may have a single lipoma or have multiple lipomas. They are very common. Lipomas can occur in people of all ages, however, they tend to develop in adulthood and are more noticeable in the older age. They also affect both sexes, although solitary lipomas are more common in women, while multiple lipomas occur more frequently in men.

Numerous causes of trapping of the suprascapular nerve have been described, including a small spinogleanoid cut, a tight ligament, bone erosions, and ganglion cysts. In the current patient, trapping of the suprascapular nerve was caused by lipoma in the suprascapular erosion.
A breast lipoma that measures more than 5 cm and weighs more than 500 g is sometimes referred to as giant mammary lipoma. Breast lipomas are not always easy to diagnose immediately. This can cause an increase in anxiety for possible breast cancer. The presence of a painless mass in an older adult woman has a potential for breast cancer. Indeed, mammography and ultrasound do not always distinguish between breast lipoma and carcinoma of the breast.
8 The term Madelung's disease, or symmetrical lipomatosis, signifies lipomatosis of the head, neck, shoulders and proximal upper limbs. People with Madelung's disease, often men who consume alcohol, may have the characteristic aspect of the neck of the eye2,10. These patients rarely experience difficulty in deglutition, respiratory obstruction and even sudden death1,2. trunk (multiple hereditary lipomatosis).
Hamartoma: A smooth, painless mass formed by the proliferation of mature breast cells, which may consist of fatty, fibrous and / or glandular tissues. Hemengioma: a rare tumor made of blood vessels Hematoma: a collection of blood in the breast caused by internal bleeding at, Adeno-myoepithelioma: a very rare tumor formed e by some cells in the walls of the milk duct Neurofibroma: a tumor that is a proliferation of nerve cells.
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.
Intravenous administration of lidocaine analgesic may temporarily relieve pain in some cases. Trea cortisone injectionsLocalized pain can also provide relief. Surgical excision of fatty deposits around the joints can temporarily relieve symptoms, although recurrences often develop. Liposuction has been used as a supportive treatment in some people with Dercum Disease and can provide initial pain reduction and improved quality of life.
Objective: To examine the reliability of the features of computed tomography (CT) imaging and magnetic resonance (MRI) to distinguish between well-differentiated lipoma and liposarcoma. Results: The statistically significant imaging characteristics favoring a diagnosis of liposarcoma included a lesion greater than 10 cm (PP = 0.001), a presence of non-lipidic globular and / or nodular zones ( P = 0.003) or masses (P = 0.001) and less than 75% fat (P CONCLUSION: A significant number of lipomas will have prominent non-adipose areas and will exhibit a traditionally imaging appearance. attributed to a well-differentiated liposarcoma.
These effects may decrease with time. Psychotherapy and consultation with pain management specialists can help sufferers cope with intense long-term pain. The other treatment is symptomatic and favorable. Researchers are studying the use of the alfa-2b interferon as a potential treatment for people with Dercum disease. Two people with Dercum who received this treatment for hepatitis C have seen an improvement in the symptoms associated with Dercum’s disease.
Further research is needed to determine the safety and long-term effectiveness of the alfa-2b interferon as a potential treatment for this disorder. Alternative approaches such as acupuncture, hypnosis, biofeedback and cognitive-behavioral therapy have also been tried out for people with Dercum disease. Information on current clinical trials is available on the Internet at www.clinicaltrials.gov.
However, they can appear in other areas of the brain, usually close to the median line. Lipomas vary in size. Single or multiple tumors may be present. A lipoma can cause no symptoms and often goes unnoticed until an examination is done for other medical reasons. Conservative treatment is generally recommended because these tumors are benign and rarely cause symptoms. Surgery may be suggested in some cases.
