Lipomas are benign fatty tumors. They can usually be diagnosed easily by their characteristic soft texture on examination. However, they can be confused for other types of soft tissue tumors especially when they are very large or when they extend deep into the muscle. When left alone, these lesions can grow very large. The best treatment is direct excision. If the entire lesion is not removed, the lipoma will likely recur (come back). Once removed, lipomas should always be sent for pathological analysis to confirm that there is no cancerous component to it.
