Is Removing a Lipoma on the Back of the Head Risky for a 14-year-old?
My daughter was born with a lipoma on the back of her head.... She is now 14 and the bump is about the size of a golf ball. Our new doctor is recommending an MRI and removal of it, but our previous doctor didn't think it was necessary. (The size and placement on the bone is her concern.) Is this a common procedure and would there be a risk of this surgery at her age? Would you recommend another opinion and if so what type of doctor would be best suited for this?
