I started working out mid 2013 and discovered a lipoma near my bra strap area (side). I have a relatively nice back so I didnt want to be embarrassed by a "lump". I called a few doctor's but Tahir was by far the nicest, customer service wise. The procedure took about 45 minutes since mine lipoma... READ MORE

Was well worth the surgery to remove this lipoma which was painful while sleeping on side and causing pressure on spine causing a lot of low back pain. Surgery was on December 10, 2012. Hospital stay overnight to control pain. Relatively speaking the surgery wasn't the cause of pain afterwards... READ MORE

I just saw a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills for what I thought was a sebaceous cyst on my forehead. After examining it, he told me that it is actually a lipoma. The doctor used the word "tumor", which instantly brought to my mind the word "cancer" but its probably benign. I... READ MORE

Well, I just had a lipoma removed from my inner thigh. I really should have done this sooner. It was 11" long by 6" wide and 4" deep, and was compressing my muscle. I did have general anastesia and needed to stay over night due to pain. At this time I still have a drain in my leg.... READ MORE

I have very painful lipomas. Sometimes they have been called Vascular Lipomatosis or Angio-Lipomas. I have had hundreds (yes that's correct) removed surgically. I have been doing it over 20 years. The first Lipoma was taken out in 1983. I think I've had close to 800 take out now. My... READ MORE

Mine sat on my forearm and sat on a nerve causing me pain down my arm into my fingers. I was so scared when they told me what it was and that I had to have it removed.

I started having migraines with the pain orginating from the lump's location. I went... READ MORE

I had a good sized lipoma removed from my back. I had for over 5 years thinking little about it, but it started to bother me. I was referred by my doctor to a surgeon.

I get these on my arms and legs. They do not hurt but look ugly, especially as they grow larger. Getting them cut out was simple. My Dr injected me with local pain killer and they were cut out within 5 minutes for each one. It was so simple, I wished that I'd done it years ago. I've added... READ MORE

About two years ago, I had noticed a large lump in my armpit. I had brought it to the attention of my trusted nurse practitioner and after a mammogram and an ultra sound, I had been assured that there was no reason to be alarmed with this lump – it did not pose a risk to my health. It... READ MORE

Mr Banwell performed a lipoma removal from my back on 26 November 2013 at the McIndoe Surgical Centre in East Grinstead. I found him courteous, affable and a true professional.
