Different Types of Lipomas
There are many different kinds of Limpomas and all of them can be removed by some variation of a Limpoma Excision because of either location or their makeup. You must speak with your surgeon to ensure that your condition can be properly managed. Here are a few types that a lipoma excision can be performed on:
- Neomophic Lipomas
- Spindle Cell Lipomas
While some lipomas are hereditary and harmless others can be connected to more serious medical conditions. There are some conditions that pose the issue of multiple growths being spread across the body. In other cases they can be abnormal and extremely painful while those that form on the neck known as Madelung Disease, can obstruct the respiratory system. Unless you’re certain that yours are harmless to your health, it’s best to consult a doctor as soon as possible so they can recommend the best path to take in treatment. There are other methods to eliminate these timorous growths but the safest and most effective method depending on the station of your condition is the Lipoma Excision.
