FAQs

What happens if a lipoma is not removed?

Lipomas are self-contained, and hence they do not invade the surrounding tissues. Most lipomas are harmless and do not require any treatment. But in some cases, they can affect the nearby blood vessels, tissues, and nerves. They can cause discomfort or pain if they have blood vessels running across them or presses a nearby nerve.

If the lipoma is causing pain and discomfort and affecting the nearby regions, you must get it removed with the help of a dermatologist.

Do lipomas ever stop growing?

Lipomas grow slowly and develop within a timeframe that involves months or years. In most cases, they remain relatively small. In many cases, they also remain stable and don’t grow once they’ve reached a particular size.

What happens if you squeeze a lipoma?

You shouldn’t squeeze a lipoma, as doing so may lead to infection. Besides, if the sac isn’t entirely removed, it can penetrate the skin even deeper and form again. If you want to remove a lipoma, you must visit a dermatologist, who will assess it and might suggest surgical removal. It will involve making a small cut and squeezing out the contents.
