Usually when people have noticeable lumps on their bodies, their minds immediately go to cancer. Well, here at Right Wing News, we’re dedicated to encouraging people to keep up with their ever-changing bodies. If you see something like this, see your physician immediately. It could be as bad as cancer, or it could be as innocent as a lipoma. These videos from Dr. Pimple Popper show you how simple a lipoma removal procedure would be and who knows? Maybe seeing how easy it is will help give someone the push they need to go to the doctor.
From Dr. Sandra Lee:
A lipoma is slow-growing, benign growth of fat cells. It is contained in a thin, fibrous capsule and found right under the skin. A lipoma is typically not tender and moves around easily with slight pressure. A lipoma is not cancerous and treatment generally is not necessary. There is also a condition called familial lipomatosus, where people develop multiple lipomas, especially on the arms and legs, and other family members have these growths as well. If the lipoma is on a pressure-bearing area, it may create discomfort and this is when people seek removal. People also request removal because they don’t like the appearance of these bumps. Often a small incision can be made over the lipoma and they can be “popped” out easily. This is a simple in-office surgical procedure under local anesthesia.

Please never hesitate to seek medical advice in cases like this. While treatment for lipomas is not necessary, it’s always good to rule out anything worse.
