Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.
I have read your query.
I understand your concern.
LLipomas are fat containing swellings. These are harmless structures and most of the times are of cosmetic concern only.
I prefer to advise surgical removal in those cases where either they are painful, of real cosmetic concern to the patient or limited in number.
I would not advise you to go for surgical excision as it will leave the scar everywhere.
You may leave them without any harm.
I hope it helps.
