Lipoma

Benign fatty tumor, often treated with excision or liposuction

Question: Is lipoma completely noncancerous no matter how long it is on your body? Also, does lipoma spread? I asked that because I'm still scared and worried about getting the lipoma removed from my back and the results that will follow after the procedure.

Answer: By definition, a lipoma is a benign fatty-cell growth, which doesn't spread, but may become large. Generally, the removal of a lipoma doesn't involve a large incision, so that the resulting scar is usually a small one. Since you are worried about it, make sure that the tissue gets examined by a pathologist, who can then assure you that the tissue is not cancerous, as there are liposarcomas, which are cancerous. However, the liposarcomas tend to be rather hard, and not soft and mushy, as is a benign lipoma.
