Lipoma is a soft, fatty and slow growing lump underneath the skin. Lipoma’s are non-cancerous and for the most part are a harmless skin condition. Over 3 million adults are diagnosed with lipoma every year and most are middle-aged adults. Although lipmoa’s are usually small in size they have the capability of growing. All abnormal lumps should be examined immediately. LUX Dermatology staff is ready to help you.
