Lipomas are compressible, soft 2 to 10 centimeter tumors of fatty tissue located beneath the skin. They may be associated with inherited syndromes or medications, but most often occur randomly. Lipomas are benign and do not require treatment unless they are painful or rapidly increase in size. Removal can be accomplished with a small in-office surgical procedure.
