45 yr old male. He developed lipoma over his left forearm at 25 years of age, and he got it excised. Recently, he developed multiple lipomas over the abdomen, arms, and thighs. There is no pain. What could be the reason behind multiple lipomas? How can we reduce them?
It sometimes inherited and present in one's genes. If it's not cause pain or not visible on exposed parts they are not necessary to be treated. However if the patient want to treat it for cosmetic reasons it can be excised. Lipomas are actually benign tumors of fat cells (very common in population). They can't be prevented as such if genetically determined.
