About 12 years ago I developed a lipoma on left side of my forehead after bumping my forehead. I went to a plastic surgeon who had me get an MRI prior to removal.

I had just gone to have a lipoma removed from the top of my head, so far the healing process seems to be going good. They had to make a pretty large cut to get it out, I do still feel slight pain but its nothing like the pain the lipoma was causing prior to the surgery. On Tuesday... READ MORE

Thought I was just going on for a consult when the Doctor told me he could remove it right there in about 15 minutes. I said go for it. I've had a grape sized lump on my temple for almost 2 years so it seemed worth it. Its only been 3 days so I cannot say how it will turn out (scar vs no scar)... READ MORE

It was difficult to decide to risk removing a lipoma that sat so close to the nerves in my jaw and sat over my jugular vein. But it was all I could see when I looked in the mirror and fiddling with it daily, I began to have a constant loathing of it. I talked with several doctors and none felt... READ MORE

I had a lipoma removed from my right arm pit. I was experiencing a lot of pain and was referred to Dr. C from my general practitioner.
