Lipoma Removal: Q&AAsk a Question
Lipoma Growing Back or 2nd Lipoma?
I had a large lipoma removed a year ago in my forearm leaving a four inch scar down my forearm. A week after the lipoma was removed I had a huge hamatoma appear. That finally went away, months later, and now I am getting another lump on the bottom of my scar and down further into the arm. When the doctor took the lipoma out he was concerned as it did not look like a lipoma and wasn't sure what it was but the pathology came back as an undescript lipoma. Do I leave this other lump alone?
May be a second lipoma, but I would get it checked anyway.
