Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. Lipoma's are benign (non-cancerous) tumors composed of fat that can develop anywhere within the body. The only proven way to remove lipomas is by surgical removal. There is no medical evidence at present supporting the hypothesis that apple cider vinegar can reduce the size of lipomas.
