Lipoma Removal: Q&AAsk a Question
What Should I Do with Recurring Lipoma?
I had a rather large lipoma spot located on my lower right side rib area, back in October of 2008. Shortly after I noticed it, farther back but in the same area there’s another spot. It is painful what should I do?
I spoke with my regular doctor and he said that I should go back to the surgeon. I happen to be a pharmacy tech and asked my pharmacist. He recommended that I see a specialist but my insurance doesn’t cover that. It has become very tender in that area. I am also wondering why the surgeon did not remove all of it or if he did, why is it back?
