Lipoma Removal: Q&AAsk a Question
Can a Lipoma in the Lower Back Cause Pain to Go Further Up my Back?
My Doctor just told me that I have Lipoma in three different places on me: my arm, under my breast where my rib cage is and one on the lower left side if my back. I just dont understand how a doctor can know that it is a lipoma just by feeling a limp.
I am scared to death and have no insurance. The only one I feel pain with is my back. Can a lipoma in the lower back cause pain further up?
You are correct - there is no way to know without taking it out.
Lipomas usually cause pain by compression.
