Dr. Oller talks about lipoma. What is it? Work up and follow up issues.
Lipomas have been identified in all age groups but usually appear between 40 and 60 years of age. These slow growing tumors, almost always benign, are generally in the form of round, motile, non-painful masses with a characteristic soft and soggy feel. Rarely, lipomas can be associated with syndromes such as multiple hereditary lipomatosis, colorless adipose, Gardner’s syndrome and Madelung’s disease.
Fetal MR imaging confirmed the fat content and the location of the lesion in all five cases. He showed the choroidal extension in two patients and the type of callosal abnormality associated with another patient better than the ultrasound. In two patients, the lipoma increased, as revealed by subsequent postnatal MR imaging. The results of the neurological examinations remained normal for the five surviving patients with an average follow-up of 3 years (1 month – 9 years).
However, their cost and availability limit their use in most developing country contexts. Histologically, they must be distinguished from liposome liposarcoma well differentiated by extensive tumor sampling.1 Although non-concomitant treatments for lipomas (such as steroidal injections and liposuction ) have become common5,6, complete surgical excision remains the treatment of choice for vulvar lipomas.

The cause of lipomas is unknown. It is possible that there is a genetic implication because many patients with lipomas come from a family having anterior to these tumors. Sometimes an injury such as a blunt blow on a part of the body can trigger the growth of a lipoma. People often ignore lipomas until they are big enough to become visible and palpable. This growth occurs slowly over several years.
The overall skin incisions are sutured with insoluble sutures that will need to be removed in the future. The recovery times vary from one patient to another. As a result, the lipoma surgeon will discuss with each patient how long recovery will take and when they can return to work and their normal level of activity. After the surgery, patients will receive detailed instructions on how to manage normal symptoms, how to take care of the incision, and potential signs of complications.

Tia Nelson examined a 12-year-old laboratory whose owners had made the painful decision to belittle her because she could not move anymore. But his problem was not old age, it was a five-pound lipome right behind and partially under the shoulder blade. “I took it off,” says Dr. Nelson, “and the dog has benefited from two more years.” In a report published on his blog “Your pet’s best friend” company, “Everett Mobley, DVM, of Kennett, Missouri, has described Ling Ling, a 15-year-old collie who has developed a large tumor in front of his left shoulder.
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.
