I have had this lipoma for nearly seven years. A removal attempt was made by a dermatologist in 2007, but was unsuccessful due to size and depth. I recently visited a general surgeon in May 2010 at Loma Linda University Hospital. They wanted over $3,000 to remove it. It is benign, but I would like to have it removed for cosmetic reasons. I am a 59 year old male, in good health, but unemployed and uninsured. Can you recommend a local doctor at a reasonable cost in Temecula or Riverside CA?
