I have lipoma on my upper neck since 2 years

Patient: I have lipoma on my upper neck since 2 years ago , it was soft and easy to move but now something is growing next to it and they r getting hard,why?

 

 

Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.I think that you have infected lymph nodes near the lipoma. This is what is causing the hard nodules. Do see a Doctor to confirm the diagnosis. A biopsy is needed to reach the diagnosis. Wishing you the best.Hope this helps you.
