What is a Lipoma?

A lipoma or fat deposit is a slow-developing growth of fat this is usually located beneath the skin and above the muscle. Lipomas are typically easy to identify as the deposits move easily with light finger pressure and feel “doughy” or pliable to the touch. A lipoma is not cancerous and is usually harmless; however, some deposits may be painful or continue to grow. They can also be cosmetically discouraging to those who are plagued with them.
