About Lipoma

A lipoma is a type of benign skin lump that is composed of fatty tissues. These fatty lumps are located between the skin and the underlying muscle layer. Normally, these lumps don't cause any harm and grow at a very gradual rate. However, in some cases, a lipoma may be present right above the blood vessels and when it grows, the blood vessels get compressed. Due to this, lipomas may cause pain and discomfort.

If you have a lipoma, either painful or painless, and wish to get rid of it, get in touch with Pristyn Care for lipoma removal surgery in Bangalore.

Treatment

Diagnosis

Lipoma diagnosis usually involves a simple physical examination. It is easy to feel and inspect as the lump is visible from the outside. Lipoma also moves when touched as it is made up of fatty tissues. The doctors may also take a biopsy to rule out the possibility of cancer. Other than that, tests like ultrasound scan, MRI scan, and CT scan are also performed for accurate diagnosis of lipoma.

Other than that, tests like ultrasound scan, MRI scan, and CT scan are also performed for accurate diagnosis of lipoma.

The effective treatment of lipoma involves surgery. During the procedure, the doctor makes a small excision and uses the liposuction technique to extract the fatty tissues. It is a minimally invasive procedure that leaves no scar on the body and reduces the chances of lipoma recurrence. Performed under the care of our expert surgeons, the procedure has a higher success rate than non-surgical treatments.

In Our Doctor's Word

What-Dr. Karthik Vishwanath-Say-About-Lipoma-Treatment

Dr. Karthik Vishwanath

MBBS, MS, Mch, MRCS

15 Years Experience

"Most of my patients come to me when the lump (lipoma) on their bodies has grown significantly. They also ask if it is possible to remove the lump through medications. In most cases, either liposuction or surgical excision is needed to remove these encapsulated lumps of fatty tissues. Though lipoma is a benign tumor, it should not be left untreated. Sometimes, a cancerous lump, i.e., a liposarcoma may go undetected, being mistaken as a lipoma. Therefore, it is critical to consult a specialist and get proper treatment for the lipoma."

Frequently Asked Question

Can lipomas go away with exercise?

You should know that it is not possible to cure lipoma by exercise. However, exercising can help to reduce fat accumulation and may work by reducing the size of the lipoma.

Will a lipoma go away on its own?

In many cases, lipoma disappears on its own. The fat cells often break down when the intake of fat from the diet is reduced and the person stays physically active. However, there is no guarantee that the lipoma will go away on its own. Hence, it is better if you consult a specialist for proper lipoma treatment.

Is it possible to drain a lipoma?

Yes. If the lipoma is causing pain and discomfort, it can be drained under the supervision of a doctor. You can consult Pristyn Care doctors and find out the most plausible treatment method for lipoma in Bangalore.

What does Pristyn Care offer for lipoma treatment in Bangalore?

No. Lipomas are highly unlikely to return after surgery. Generally, the fatty tissues are extracted completely to make sure that the fat tissues don’t start depositing in the same place. However, there is a slight possibility that you may get lipoma in another part of the body.

Is the lipoma excision procedure at Pristyn Care, Bangalore covered under insurance?

Yes. The lipoma excision procedure carried out by Pristyn Care doctors in Bangalore is covered under the health insurance policy. Our medical coordinators will handle the insurance paperwork and help to get 100% claim for the treatment.

Get Painless Treatment for Lipoma in Bangalore with Pristyn Care

Lipomas are not life-threatening or cancerous tumors. They sometimes disappear on their own too. However, in many cases, lipomas keep growing and become huge in size.
