Treatment options for multiple lipoma

Patient: Dear sir, Previously i had one lipoma in my hand and also very small.nowadays it is getting bigger in size and got some other more in my hands and legs…is ter any treatment for that.am feeling very bad on seeing that please help me …

 

 

Doctor: Lipoma are harmless and may need no treatment. However you may get them surgically removed for cosmetic reasons. Liposuc tion and steroid injections are yet other options available that shrink the lipoma and results in less scarring, however, with large lipomas it may fail to remove the entire tumor, which can lead to re growth.
