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 and consult the best plastic surgeons in Kochi.
