Should I Be Worried About Large Lipomas?
In early 2004, I found a small fatty lump about the size of a nickle on my back next to my shoulder blade. After speaking to my physician, she told me that it was nothing to concern myself with, but if I wanted to remove it she would be happy to take care of it or I could just leave it alone. So I did just that. Five years later, I was told that the lump is now the size of a softball, maybe even a little bigger. There's still the fatty feeling, but now it has a quarter-sized spot in the middle of it that is hard and extremely painful to touch. There also seems to be about an inch wide stream from the mass to my spine which is painful to the touch as well. Is this a lipoma, and should I be worried?
